I Need to Update My Reading List

Speaking of being busy, I was noticing that the list of books I'm reading (on the sidebar) is way out of date.  I haven't updated it since before I changed my blog template.  I've finished reading the books it says I'm reading now and read several others.  I just haven't kept the list updated.  Thankfully I have been keeping track through the WeRead app on facebook - except I just attempted to access my book list (shelf? do they call it a bookshelf?) on WeRead and got an error message: "Sorry, the application you were using is experiencing a problem. Please try again later."  So now I'm panicking.  What if my book list for 2011 is lost for good?

Considering I've been reading all my life and just started keeping track of the books I read a few years ago, I'm sure I'll survive even if I don't get access to my book list again.  But I will, right?  Right?

Whether I keep a list of all the books I read or just read them without keeping track, I'll still be reading - until I need reading glasses.  Actually, I guess I kinda do need reading glasses, since I had to get bifocals this year, but I can still read without them if I want to.   I might end up doing that even more, because it's harder to find cute eyeglass frames for women that can handle the progressive lenses - at least for me because I need such narrow frames for my face.  I can't imagine not reading.  I would probably put up with big, ugly glasses if I had to just so I was able to read.  Thankfully, I don't have to!

Right now I'm in between books, trying to decide what to read next, and I feel sort of lost - even though I haven't actually had time to sit down and read for a while, I still need to have something at least started.  Technically I say I'm reading the next Harry Potter book, Order of the Phoenix, but all that really means is that I finished the last one and pulled this one off the shelf.  For some reason, I took a break from Harry Potter and read a couple other books in between - books that aren't on my list yet!  As soon as I can get back into WeRead, I need to update that list in the sidebar and probably start working on my end-of-the-year reading list post.  It will be fun to find out how many books I read this year.

How many have you read?
