Which is to say, anything. Since my last book post (almost a month ago now!) I’ve read:
• one book
• two magazines
• sixty percent of second book that I should have finished in two days and just have not been able to get through
There are a lot of reason for this- in mid-October I ran out of all the books I had lined up, my pre-Halloween funk of lethargy and sulking, my also-pre-Halloween frenzy of costume making, my post-Halloween frenzy of Sym’s birthday party and gift preparation. Of course, all that is over now and you’d think that before I get into my Christmas frenzy I could get some reading done but NOPE. Yesterday I planned on powering through my current book and finishing it while the kids were having nap, but instead I spent the entire afternoon (and part of the evening) picking a new layout for this blog, changing the fonts and making a fancy header which I didn’t even end up using. Clearly not the best use of my time!
My goal was to read 104 books this year. When I finish my current book (which I’m doing today, NO EXCUSES) that’ll put me at 82, leaving me with 22 books to read in the last 50 days of the year. That’s one book every 2.25 days. Can I do it? Should I do it? Would you do it? I don’t know if I’m going to meet my goal but DANG IT, I’m still going to try.
