And I’m currently reading Young Miles by Lois McMaster Bujold but I don’t think I’ll finish it before the year ends because I’m also watching the second season of Big Bang Theory.

2009 was a good year of reading for me because I was unemployed for most of the year. I had a lot of time to read. In 2010, I look forward to more great reads. I have a huge TBR pile that needs to be tackled and I should keep my resolution: to not buy more books until I finish my backlog (but I don’t think that’s going to happen). If you have any suggestions of books that you think I’d like based on this list, feel free to leave a comment. πŸ™‚

In case I don’t get the chance to write another entry before the year ends, HAPPY 2010, everyone!

  1. WOW! You’re a super voracious reader talaga, Chachic! Naiinggit ako sa’yo.
    Nako, ang mga binasa ko lang sa 2009 are 3 GMAT review books, hahaha. At Lonely Planet book ng London, Madrid and Barcelona. :p Sana mahawa ako sa kasipagan mo sa pagbabasa! πŸ™‚

  2. Mike! Mostly young adult fantasy naman yan so easy to read. Tsaka wala akong ibang hobbies. Haha my favorite things to do: eat, sleep and read. You can probably throw in yung panonood ng series pero that’s it. Sobrang tamad!
    Kamusta naman ang results ng GMAT review books mo! HBS! Sulit na sulit na. πŸ™‚ Haha hanggang pangarap lang ako pagdating sa ganon. Ang galing galing talaga!

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you!
