I <3 Reading!
I just finished the 8th Alice book, Alice in Lace. I feel like it had a bit more meat to it than the last one, and I was pleased.
That puts me at four books to go to match the number I read last year. That wasn’t a goal, but it’s nice to see and probably going to happen—especially since we’ve got a bit of a blizzard going on and work may be closed tomorrow. Good thing I stocked up on library books.
My book goal for the year, actually, was to get 50 books off my to-read bookcase at home. I met this goal and then some: I read 73 of my own unread books. Since my original goal was 50, I’m doing a little happy dance on the inside right now. (I’d do a little dance on the outside, but I think I’m getting a sinus infection or I messed up my allergy meds or something because my balance is all off-kilter again.)
I’ve gotta start thinking up new reading goals for 2011. I’m thinking 50 more off of the shelf (including Great Expectations, because–hello, Oprah, it makes me a better librarian to read what the patrons are reading), and whatever’s on my Kindle. Oh, and to clear out my currently-reading list on Goodreads which, ugh, includes that Midnight Sun draft.
I also want to lose thirty pounds, but that’s a whole other kettle of fish. Which would leave me buying new work clothes, so uh, I’m cheap enough to think, “Gee, maybe not.”
