Just a little bit of light reading in 2010

I love stories, ever since my dad read to me when I was a kid and told me stories.  This past year has seen me able to indulge my reading habit more than probably ever before. I came to India well prepared with a Sony eReader, some short stories, a few paperbacks, lots of ebooks , loads of audio books and I have even acquired a few others along the way.  There is after all not much else to do in the evenings her.
If you are interested in my thoughts on any of these I suggest you stop by and join Goodreads, where I am a member of the Constant Reader Book Discussion group and some of these books have my review comments on their Goodreads page (use the Author hyperlink from here). 
So here is my list for the past 13 months reading. My best read recommendations for each month are in bold italics . Happy reading!
