In 2008 I read a total of 137 books. Some classics that had been on my list for quite some time Do Androids Dream of Electronic Sheep, A Room of One’s Own, On Writing (by Stephen King), Ring World, and The Jungle. I read quite a few cookbooks, knitting, crochet, and weaving books. I read piles of fantasy and science fiction.
And I look forward to reading more in this new year.
My goal is to try to “read down” the scary pile of books I own. I have about seven holds threatening to come in at the library all at the same time. I have more than I wish to admit that were started and abandoned and I hope to finish those.
Congratulations to Beverly who guessed the correct number. I have your address dear and soon I hope to send you a little something related to reading… For Yvonne and Limonene, I’ll be sending you something as well for being quite kind and participating. Since there aren’t many readers here and I was mean to run it for such a short time in the middle of a holiday week… just give me a short bit to gather it together.
I was aiming for 140 but E fell asleep on top of me (it’s not as sexy as it sounds) and I was trapped on the couch with only a copy of The Opinionated Knitter, 4.5mm circs, and a ball of cotton-ease for about 2 hours last night. ;)
Despite a very quiet night, I’m cold and tired so I’ll write up the huge pile of “reviews” for Monday.
May this new year be a good one for all…
