Books, books, and more books!

When we rang in the New Year 2010, I resolved to read a book a week this year.  It's been a challenge to keep up the momentum, but it's also been exciting to see my virtual bookshelf fill up on Shelfari.  My shelf is at the bottom of my blog here, if you care to take a look.

So far, I've read 42 books this year!  I MUST read 10 more books by New Year's Eve or I'll be disappointed in myself.  No matter what is happening in my life, I absolutely have to read everyday, or I get to feeling like the day was a waste.  During the day, I plot how I'll get schoolwork, errands, and housework done in time to get in bed by 10, so I can read for at least an hour before going to sleep.  It's what I look forward to all day...

My husband, @TheAmericanPoet on Twitter, honored me with a poem about my reading quest. Please read it at his blog, Crowned with Laurels.

Iv'e been getting into audiobooks lately! I can listen while in the car or working on laundry or dishes...

Lately, I seem to fall asleep as soon as I get in bed. I will start reading and maybe get through 1 page or 2. I am jealous you can go for an hour!

I usually do my reading of (tangible) books in the mornings on my days off. Coffee and a little snack in hand too...perfect.

Wow! I am inspired by all your reading and reading goals!
