Biggest Accomplishment in 2009
Still finding time to read lots of books and post 169 times even after starting business school. (I shoulda reviewed my Very Boring Marketing Textbook, at the very least . . . )

Here's to more good reads in 2010.

Thank you for this list! There are great books that I read, ones that I want to read, and some that I haven't heard of - on to the To Be Read pile they go!
