...and then my life was turned upside down...

Okay....maybe not completely upside down but it definitely made a 45 degree pivot.

Then another one.

And possibly one more.

That would put me upside down, right?

The last 15 months have been nothing like what I would have expected or wished for anyone to endure, but it explains why I haven't read many books.  With that in mind, I decided it was time to re-focus the blog I started to incorporate the many new things taking up space on my already stuffed shelves.

10 books I didn't read this year

I didn't get to read as many books in 2012 as I would have liked, but I had some really good excuses: a ton of work, crazy mother-in-law issues (not going any further than that, just trust me on that one), a child who has been getting chemo treatments (he's doing well and will be fine...thank you for your concern), and a number of other distractions.  All in all, though, I was able to read 20 books which ain't too bad with all things considered.

So instead of retracing the books I did read, I thought I'd give you a quick list of 10 books I didn't read and had it been any other year, I would have completed them.
