I have now read fifty books - well, finished reading fifty novels; this does not include the short stories or children's picture books.
Now, I know that there are some people who hit fifty books within the first few months of 2012, but for me, hitting fifty books in September is pretty damned good.
I used to read up to four books a week.
this, however, was pre-internet...or rather, pre-I-now-have-internet.
Since I've discovered the internet/gotten access at home for internet, things like Castleville and FB have seriously curtailed my reading.
Oh - and those grandchildren of mine.
Since they've been born, my reading of novels has dropped, but my reading of picture books has increased.
In other "sadder" news, I went from 103 followers to 101 followers.
Good thing I'm not getting paid for blogging, I would be an epic fail at this.
I don't write scathing reviews, or get very snarky - so it's possible that I'm too boring for some.
On the other hand, I don't post every single day - so that might be another factor.
Whatever - the main reason I even started blogging was just to keep track of what I've been reading - there was a time when I would buy a book, forgetting that I'd already bought and read it.
Now I have a record of a sort...
and now I have a few online friend, which is a huge bonus.
And I've also discovered LOL Catz, and have been having some fun creating a few of my own captions for some cat/dog pics.
Which is harder than you would think - especially for an imagination-challenged person, like myself.
50 books. In 2009 I barely read 44 books in the whole year.
2010 I read 54.
Ahhh - But last year - 2011, I finished 72 books.
72! a record for me.
It's possible that I might have at least 65 books finished by December 31st.
Not as many as 2011, but better than 2009.
That's going to be my goal -
a total of 65 novels read by the end of December.
That's 15 more books in three months.
that's possible, right? haha - not if I have any more of those no-book weeks.
But I think I now want to challenge myself - even better would be to surpass 2011's 72 books - but I'm not totally insane.
(I better hurry)
wish me luck!
