I love lists. I function better with lists, deadlines, and friends who remind of things I forgot to write down. :) Anyways, I made a list of all of the books I read in 2009. Shameful. It seems I'm no longer a bookworm, but a former bookworm. Grad school and wedding planning can have that affect. Most of the books I read last year were read in the latter part of the year. Which means 2010 should be a banner year for reading. So far I've already got two finished and I'm almost half-way through Sense and Sensibility. I love it. I knew I'd love Jane Austen once I began reading her works, and I was correct. I'm challenging myself to read more this year. I haven't given myself a number to aspire to or anything like that. I know me, and that'll weigh on me and reading will become a chore, not a pleasure.
Another note on lists, to prove how much I have always loved them. As a child, I would keep an extensive list of the books I had read, when I began them and when I ended them. You see, I have always been competitive too and I wanted to see how fast I was reading through the books. In the end that took pleasure out of the reading as well.
Happy reading to all!
