Milestone

Today, I finished my 143rd book of the year.  In 2007, it took me all year to read that much, including several children’s books.  It looks like my average page count is higher, too.

If you follow this blog, you know I read about a book a day.  That only started in 2008.  The one thing I changed was to wonder what would happen if I finished one book before I started another, since in the past I would always dabble between half a dozen or more titles at a time.  As soon as it occurred to me that I could read a book a day, I wanted to.

Wouldn’t you?

Of course I have to take advantage of this opportunity while I can.  In another month, I’ll go from Single, No Responsibilities to Stepmom with a House and a Dog.  Anyone who has to do more than two loads of laundry a week is probably laughing maniacally at me right now!

  1. I went from an average of over a book a day to about 2 books per week over the last few weeks. Hopefully my reading picks back up after finals! Good luck on the upcoming wedding!

    • If you find yourself needing a little break, why not pamper yourself? 😉

  2. My reading’s picked up a bit, now that I’m adjusted into my new job and surroundings.

    I’m rooting for you, but I think the life change will have an effect on your totals. But if there is a way for you to adjust and keep going full steam ahead, I know you’ll find it.
