My Greatest Reads of 2010-2011

A Listmania! list by Melissa Conley
The list author says: "I will read anytime, anywhere, anything. I am always on the hunt for a great book and seldom go one day without spending at least one hour reading. The first thing I do in the morning is pick up my book and read for several minutes before coffee (now that's some serious dedication). I've read biographies, historical fiction, poetry, short stories, novels, etc. My list may not be impressive to anyone but me, but I'm hoping to share my love of literature!"
