I just had a jolt…
I just realised that I’ve read 93 books this year, and back to back some more than once (hence counting towards my read count). I have not paused once this year to NOT READ. (I’m working on 93 & 94!)
I have written about my slightly obsessive reading habits, but last year I read 86 or so books, and I thought I had read more in 2005 than I had since the days of engulfing all books at and by sheer will in childhood. So it just wowed me this morning as I was perusing my year review over at 43people.
I also have about a dozen or so books in my pile of acquisitions from this year still to read. Shucks, it’ll take me a while just to get through what I acquired from my sojourn in Hackney.
Wonder what it will be like next year…..
Maybe one of my 43 things for 2006 will be to read 100 books.
