100+ Reading Challenge Completed

A big, big thank you to J. Kaye for this wonderful challenge. I would never have read so many books, or reviewed so many books if it wasn't for J. Kaye, her challenges, her comments and encouragement. I enjoyed it so much I've signed up for the 100+ again in 2010 and you can too - sign up at J. Kaye's Book Blog.

It was too much work to link all the reviews to the books I've read in this post so the ones marked ** are my absolute favourites this year. Of course if you want to check out reviews for any of the other books I've read, just use the search facility in the top left hand corner of my blog.
