I really wish I had thought to start keeping track of the books I've read a lot earlier, like way back when I first started reading. I also wish I could read faster or had more time to read or something, so I could read more than 45 books in an entire year, but at least I'm reading. Unfortunately there are people who never read. For the life of me I can't imagine that. I always feel lost without at least one book going - even if I don't really have time to read it, I at least have to have it started. Which reminds me, I just finished Dewey - what next?

  1. I love reading but there's no way I could find time to read as much as you do, that's amazing!

    I saw Dewey in the shops yesterday and thought I might have to get that.

    BTW do you buy all these books or get them from the library?

  2. I have friends who read a lot more than I do, so I was thinking I wish I had time to read more. Of course, I was surprised at my total number by the time I got finished with the list.

    I loved Dewey - it made me cry several times.

    We own a couple of the books on my list, but the majority of them come from the library. I like library books best because I don't have to pay for them, and when I'm finished reading them, they don't take up room on my shelves. Of course, I have enough books of my own - it's just that I read the books from the library instead, because I can always read mine later. Except later doesn't ever seem to come. :P

  3. One of my 'resolutions' is to take take time out for 'me' and doing the things I used to enjoy so much before the computers and internet took over my life. One of the main things on that list is reading. So, I'm getting back into reading, and I'm really realizing how much I love it and missed it.

    Did you enjoy The Story of Edgar Sawtelle? That's a book I've been wanting to get for my dad and me to read (we trade books back and forth often).

  4. Thanks for reading THE BOOK OF NAMES! We had a blast writing it and hope you enjoyed it.

    Jill Gregory and I are voracious readers as well. Fun to see your eclectic reading list. Happy reading in 2010.
