"The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them."

From Neil Gaiman's website, which for me says it all: "May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, ...somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."

I haven't managed to keep my booklist up to date for 2010 - today, but I am still reading :)
