Twenty Three

The last time I updated on my book reading progress was back in August.  I wasn't doing too well.

Fast forward to today, the 18th of December.  I haven't made my goal of reading 25 books.  I did make it to 23 though!  I am pretty satisfied with this fact.  I know that if I really, really wanted to make it happen, I could manage two books.  It's just... let's face it folks, it's the end of the year, the holidays, the gatherings, the madness.

You can see all the books I read here.  I think 23 is a good number.  Then I realized that I have read 9,392 pages this year!  Whoa.  In 2010, I came close to that number with 7,991 pages.

This feels like a win to me.  I'm looking forward to setting another goal of 25 books in 2014.  I look forward to trying to make it more of a routine to read a bit every day.  This Mama needs to find some time for herself.  Kicking back with a good book should do the trick.

I already have the Divergent series on my list.  Other suggestions for good reads?


  1. I have the Divergent series on my reading list too - in fact all three are on my amazon wish list!! The Host was really good if you haven't read it. Alice I Have Been & Mrs. Tom Thumb by Melanie Benjamin are both great books!

    1. I have read The Host! I actually read it back in 2008. I'm looking forward to future books in that series. I'll have to check out these others too! Thanks!

    2. :) I just thought I'd share my reading list by rating since I wasn't sure what type you'd like. Added ya back on goodreads :)
