All things bookish!

Considering the amount of socialising I did last week I’m pleased to have read (or part-read) two books bringing my total for 2010 to 53.  My target was 100 but my life changed quite dramatically in the Spring and my reading time was quite drastically curtailed so I’m not at all surprised I didn’t make it.  I’ve set my target for this year at 52 which is a whole lot more realistic.  Of course, life could change again – who knows?

How’s your reading week been?

      I read the library copy and then bought my own, Mary. Am going to try and work through it month-by-month.

  7. Congrats on reading 53 books! 🙂 My reading this week hasn’t been going that great. Been knitting more than reading but I hope to get at least one book read this week.

    Happy New Year to you and your kitties. 🙂
