I wasn't sure if I could go it what with work and all, but I did. Today I finished my 60th book which is fitting seeing that it's the last day of 2009. Close one, but I knew I could deliver. My last book was The Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. I'll be reading it with my students when I get back to work, so I thought I should have a head start.
I'd like to thank the public library. If it wasn't for PCLIBS, I would be a broke joker.
I'd also like to thank my hubs who is an avid gamer. Final Fantasty 60001 kept him occupied and gave me lots of free reading time :)
and finally to my Nest book club friends who cheered me on and gave me new reading material.
I think I may have a smaller reading goal for myself next year since one of my New Year's resolutions is to get out of the house more, but I think I'll aim for 50 (or about a book a week). My first read of the 2010 will be The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I've been aching to read this book for ages, and I finally have the time to do it. Next, I will read Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger. I absolutely loved her novel The Time Traveler's Wife. I can't wait to read the new book.
In 2010, I'm starting my own real life book club. We're going to meet once a month starting in January (if I can get everyone on board).
