I failed miserably with my planned quarterly updates. Two months left and I've read 46 of the 48 books I wanted to read this year. I think I've mentioned before that I don't have a lot of time to read - I'm a little addicted to Netflix while I scrapbook and if I try to read in bed, I end up getting hit in the face as I fall asleep and drop my book! So my reading time is confined to my lunch time and the ride home on the bus. Four books a month seemed like a lot when I set the goal in January but it's been going very well.
I loved discovering Kate Quinn this year and I read a lot of World War II fiction as well as a healthy dose of books set in picturesque English villages with the odd Danielle Steel thrown in when I want a quick read and of course, you know me, a few Christmas books. I still have 56 books on my Want to Read list and I keep adding to them with recommendations from fellow bloggers or when I go to Barnes and Noble, I snap quick photos of covers that appeal to me, and then request the titles from the library.
