Fifty nine! Booyah! Fifty Nine!! Even WITH April and October at only one book that entire month!! Also, I don't count audio books in this above list. These are all books I read, not listened to. (I don't consider hearing a book in my car on the way to and from work "reading." Were I to add those, forget about it.)

Wow, I have some serious reading to do in 2010!
