Happy New Year everyone! Ready to read lots of great books this year? I am but first let me give you my glimpse of how I did in 2008.
Total books read in 2008: 91 (same as last year – weird)
* Books by women: 72
* Books by men: 19
* Fiction: 43
* Mystery: 29
* Classics: 1
* Memoirs: 4
* Young Adult: 5
* Sci-Fi/Fantasy: 3
* Books in translation: 7
* Books borrowed from library: 17
For the most part, no surprise with those numbers. I participated in 10 reading challenges (one I still carried over into this year) and only finished four of those challenges. I think that should tell me something but as you can see I’m still jumping in and doing several this year.
Last year I said I hoped to read more classics, short stories and poetry and of course whittle away at my TBR stacks. These weren’t set in stone and good thing because I only read one classic, but I did read a lot more short stories than I typically do and all of my challenge books were from my reading stacks so that is always a good thing.
I don’t really make reading goals because that’s a sure sign I won’t reach them but I’ll just say that I hope this year I’ll be drawn to more classics, non-fiction and other various genres.
Here’s hoping everyone has a great reading year ahead!
