Off to a Slow Start :D

I’ve finally gotten caught up on book reviews (at LibraryThing; Also herebedragons over there), and discovered that I read a total of 181 books in 2007. Which is more than my original goal (of 150), so YAY!

This year, I would like to read 100, but I’m not sure it’s going to happen. One month into the year, and I’ve only finished three books so far. Still . . . it’s possible that I’ll pick up my pace at some point, so I’m going to leave the goal for now. I do have a lot going on this year, though. So, yeah. We’ll see.

Still 181 for last year wasn’t bad!

181 not bad?
That's great!

I never made it to get my goal done as it was 111, but hey, I stopped reading in July, lol...


Hope you find some time this year again to read :-)

Re: 181 not bad?
:D Yeah, I guess 181 isn't bad - although I'd sort of hoped to reach 300, and came nowhere CLOSE. :D

Here's to both of us reading as much as we want in 2008! :)

Re: 181 not bad?
Oh that sounds like a good plan, even though I have to say that most of the books I have here (all put on the mount to be read during the last two years) just don't catch my interest anymore, lol...

Just a thought
I have a pretty good idea of what is taking up your reading time. ;)

Re: Just a thought
Yeah, now that Connor is back in school, I've been spending ALL day doing nothing but housework! It's eating away at ALL of my time!

*giggles*

(Okay, so I have been doing a lot of housework, but that's not really the only think eating away my time. I'm not complaining, though). ;)

OH! And a question for you . . . how similar is a concertina to an accordian? Could you read/play concertina music? (I'm asking because I have some, from the 19-teens and 1920s, that belonged to my great-grandfather). It's yours if you want it. :)

I've only finished 3 also. I'm about a quarter through #4.

Hee! Literally two minutes ago I just finished number four ("Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar").

Even so, I don't quite feel on track for 100. :D

I feel I'm doing pretty well so far considering that I'm working full-time for a tyrant and taking two classes that require a lot of my time. :)
