In 2010 I started reading for pleasure again, fueled mostly by my friend Holly, who is a sales rep for a large publisher and has a personal penchant for YA (young adult) fiction. She started by lending me The Hunger Games and a few others, and next thing you knew she was showing up with a bag of books every few weeks, and I’d send her home with the finished pile. I was nondiscriminating, and I was devouring books! At the end of that year, I had read approximately 75 books—and I had really only started in March. So going into 2011 I set a 100-book goal, just to see.
