books read in 2010

Once again I attempted the 50 book challenge, and unsurprisingly, once again I failed. Still, two books every three months or so isn’t bad given my schedule, and I have a few partially read books waiting in the wings.

  1. It’s tricky to hit 50. You have to average one book a week or four books in a month plus two. Using Overdrive, ebooks, and audiobooks are the only way I can reach it. (my commute is only ten minutes plus when I walk to dogs in the evening, maybe an hour a day, so that’s always an option if you want to hit that mark.)

  2. This is something I’m trying to do! It’s a little tough at the moment because I’m rereading the Narnia series with my friend Kristen and I’m not counting books I’ve already read. I still managed to read a book last week as well as 1 1/2 books in the Narnia series. We’ll see if I can keep up the pace 🙂 Are you going to do this challenge in 2011?

  3. I am trying this again in 2011. I’ve been doing it every year since 2007, with about the same results. This month I’m making myself turn off the computer at 9:30. So, either I’ll get more sleep, which I need, or I’ll read for a little while before bed.

    I’m thinking about doing a 12 book challenge — pick 12 books I haven’t read that are sitting on my shelves, and then try to read one of them each month. I need to sit down and figure out which 12, though.

  4. The 12 book challenge sounds more doable. For me it would be more satisfying, too, because it would mean making a dent in a stack of books that had been staring at me! Luckily, I don’t have that problem since all of my reading material comes from the public library.

    There have been a few rare months where I’ve read more than two books. It usually happens when my cable is out for an extended period. I enjoyed reading a lot more when I was a teen; now it gets edged out by TV and internet.
