Book-a-week FAIL! (sorta)

At the beginning of the year, I set a resolution of reading a book a week (or 52 total).  If you have been following along with my list it will come as no surprise to you that I am not going to get to 52 books before the end of the year; I am currently at 20 books, including the one I finished last night, with a month to go.  I could give a lot of excuses and even a few valid reasons for not making this aggressive goal, but I can sum them all up with “I have been really busy”.  I do want to “finish strong” and get a few more books read.  It would be nice to get to 24 (two per month) or even better to get to 26 (one every two weeks).  But I will take it one book at a time.

I was going to call this a total failure, until I looked over the list of books that I have read.  I had a good balance with fiction (5 titles) and non-fiction (15 titles).  Read a great biography of Lou Gehrig, read a couple of books on Google (I enjoyed “I am feeling lucky” much better than “In the Plex”) and finally got my hands on a book I have been wanting to read for years “Showstopper!”.  I think reading 20+ books is more than most people do in a year, so I think that is a positive.  The only real FAIL! is that I did not get around to blogging enough about the books as I read them.
