The 50 book challenge

I definitely read more than 50 books in 2009. I think it was around 60 at the final total. My numbers were always a little off because I didn't keep track of them until June. So for about 6 months I could only tally up about 12 books that I had read, though I am sure there must be more. But even so, I made up for my slow start during the Summer and Fall and then rounded out the fifty books with the Harry Potter series. And I did NaNoWriMo in November which took a lot of time away from reading and into writing.

Since this seems to be the only New Years resolution I can manage to keep, then I shall make it again, officially, here.

In 2010 I will read at least 50 books. I will only count re-reads if I haven't read them since high school. (so "Speak" and "The Lovely Bones" will count, but "The Truth About Forever" and "The Nature of Jade" won't). Is it sad that I already know what books I am going to re-read this year? Oh well.

I am currently reading Goth Girl Rising by Barry Lyga and I also started Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult because I was stuck at a train station with nothing to do except buy a random book and start reading it! I might hold off on finishing it right away though because I want to re-read The Lovely Bones before I see the movie when it's out.

After those books I am not sure what's in store. I still want to read The Chronicles of Narnia and I have a lot of random books I bought last year that never made the cut.

2009, The Best Parts:

My boyfriend asked me to marry him
I got accepted to Grad school
I went on a road trip with my best friend for 10 days
I read Harry Potter, and know I would be in Gryffindor
I won NaNoWriMo
I saw one of my favorite bands, AAR, twice
Mike and I made it through our first year of living together
I learned that there are still people out there who will help a stranger
I discovered I am brave
