Books Read in 2010 / Remembering Emilie

Those who have been reading here since last year know the story of my friend, Emilie, who every December listed on her blog all the books she had read that year.  I am keeping up her tradition here.

Hug, text, e-mail, call, or otherwise love your friends and family today.  Life changes fast.
