Debbie  (db_debber) | 2757 comments I loved having a place where I could keep track of all my books and challenges last year:
Debbie's 2010 Reading Lists
Some links that might come in handy:
Debbie's 2010 Book List (144 Books in 2010 Group)

so I am preparing to do it again this year.
Debbie's 150 Books in 2011 (Cover to Cover Group)



Rating is out of 5:
★☆☆☆☆ - Bad! Could not finish
★★☆☆☆ - Not that great. Finished but didn't really enjoy.
★★★☆☆ - It was good. Average read, not really memorable though.
★★★★☆ - Liked it. Had a good time with it.
★★★★★ - Loved it! Would read it again - anytime.
Out of all the little add ons I had in the previous list, these are really the only ones I used:
★ (& # 9733 ;)
☆ (& # 9734 ;)
✔ (& # 10004 ;) heavy
✓ (& # 10003 ;) standard
But, I do like my moons handy also:
☾ (& # 9790 ;) waning crescent moon: ☾
☽ (& # 9789 ;) waxing crescent moon: ☽
☯ (& # 9775 ;) yin & yang
☺ (& # 9786 ;) smiley face
☸ (& # 9784 ;) Dharma Wheel
De♭♭ie

in preparation for 2012:
