And as it turns out, I'll be also going into my 10th year tracking what I've read. (From 2004 through 2009, I tracked in a notebook then transferred to a private livejournal account. January 3, 2010, I posted my first review here!)
I went from having read 46 books in 2004, to a lifetime low of 4 books read in 2008 (that was the year I got married -- I was very preoccupied!), to reading over 100 books yearly since 2011.
Having this blog has been a wonderful gift: it's been a delight meeting so many interesting and passionate readers, and I've been introduced to authors and genres I would never have discovered on my own. I'm grateful for all of you-- thank you for making my life richer and more interesting!
This weekend I will be digging myself (and that red car!) from New England's first blizzard/nor'easter. Other than that, however, I'll be continuing my reading streak -- finishing up Linda Bamber's Taking What I Like: Stories and Nicky Penttila's An Untitled Lady.
What are you reading this weekend? Those of you digging out, stay warm!
