Can It Be Done?

September 26, 2008 at 3:47 pm | Posted in Book Blather | 4 Comments

If you’re following my story, it may have caught your attention that I’m trying to read a book a day this year.  Along the way it occurred to me that I was ahead of schedule and might be able to break 400.  Right now I have 97 days left to read 112 books.  Keep in mind that we’re getting close to the holidays, with all that family travel, shopping, and frantic last-minute knitting.

Can it be done?

So far my average is 1.08 books per day.  By that measure, I won’t quite make it.  On the other hand, to make my goal I’d have to read a book a day plus an additional 15.  It’s relatively easy for me to read extra books on the weekend – I often do five between Friday and Sunday – and there happen to be 14 weekends left in the year, plus four paid holidays.

The other question is, should I post about every book I read, or only the ones I find noteworthy?  Are you readers out there more interested in learning about the books themselves, or about the experience of cramming so many pages into one’s brain?

  1. If anyone can, you can. Screw the holidays!

  2. I started reading your blog because of the impending feat, but I stayed because of the reviews. I’m in now, no matter which books you post about.

  3. WOW…you’ve set the bar high but I have faith that you can do for it. Wishing you luck and sending up a prayer for you! YGG!

  4. Thanks, you guys!
