Reading? I did somewhat poorly in my project to read 2010 releases in December; I enjoyed those I read but I didn't get to too many, mainly because it took me almost the entire month to read David Grossman's wonderful new book. In December I read:
- The Swimming Pool, by Holly LeCraw,
- Bad Marie, by Marcy Dermansky,
- The Finkler Question, by Howard Jacobson,
- From the Land of the Moon, by Milena Agus, and
- To the End of the Land, by David Grossman.
I'm also working on a blog-improvement project: I'm creating two indices of books I've reviewed, one by author and one by title. The title index will be simple. The author index will take a little time, but I think both will represent a step forward.
How did you do with your December reading? Do you have any plans or reading resolutions for the New Year?

UPDATE: The indices are done and are live on the blog! You can see them on the left hand sidebar near the top.
