I read 17 books for the 2nds Challenge 2011 hosted by A Few More Pages and achieved my goal of 12 books.

I enjoyed all of the books I read for this challenge and intend to continue with most of them. This year, I read three 2nds books from my favorite authors, so I can’t choose between them: A Local Habitation, Flying too High, and City of Ruins were all excellent. Bear and Cherryh are also among my favorite authors but for some reason, I didn’t enjoy these books as much as their previous ones. However, I will continue with these series, too.
