Book Update

Peoples! I have read 61 books! 

Right now, I'm on a Tamora Pierce fix. After I finish the immortals series, I will have read all of her novels (I'm not a fan of short stories, so I am not including those).

I think I am going to aim for 70 books next year. I have a whole bookshelf full of books that require me to read them.

You better all be proud of me. It's okay if you aren't - I'm proud of myself enough for all of you. Heh.

You must be a really fast reader. I read all the time and I'm only half way through book 50. I am proud of you.

Yay for 50 books...do you think you'll finish it by December 31st?

Thanks for the pridenosity. I do appreciate it. It is such a great feeling accomplishing a goal. I so rarely set an achievable resolution, so I think I'll stick with a "book goal" for my next resolution. :)

good job! i wish i was able to read so many books in a year =( i love reading. but i'm a picky reader. plus i hardly time to do my personal hobbies with full time work and school. however i do love hearing about the books you've read though - i always make a mental reminder to pick up the ones you suggest.

Thanks!

I totally understand about time! I read a bit in the morning, a bit at my lunch break, and then before bed. Recently, it has been easier, because the books I am reading are not cerebral or all that "deep".

how many books was the goal?

I think if I did it I'd have to have a way lower number... like 30 or 40.

Altho when I do get into books I tend to read through them uber fast.... but lately I've been in a book rutt and not wanting to read.

I think Starting from Jan 1st I shall keep track of how many books I read. ^_^

I had a goal of 50 books for this year.

I was in a book rut back in late summer. Winter makes me want to curl up and read a lot, though. :)

Yay - keep a list at your journal, so I can see and perhaps get some suggestions for my list. :)

might steal this one
I think I shall use this as my new years resolution as well. Keeping track of them on your journal is also super smart! What a great resolution, way funner than trying to lose those pesky pounds that never seem to leave. Thanks again for the tip and I hope you don't mind if I borrow your resolution for my own. :)

Re: might steal this one
:) I don't mind at all (I certainly didn't invent the resolution, tee-hee). I agree - it is much more enjoyable than trying to lose those irksome pounds. :)
