I figured if Jessica can have her list of 52 books for 2009, I should be able to create a goal for myself. I settled on the number 5, I think it's a fairly safe number. As of right now, not counting books I started in 2008 that carried over into 2009 (The Road by Cormac McCarthy), I am currently at...1 "Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson. To say I'm a slow reader is slightly unfair. I don't read on the train because I occasionally get motion sick when I try, I have a hard time making myself read during the day (for no reason other than I get distracted easily), so that leaves me with reading just before I fall asleep. So, I'm reading about 30 minutes each time, lame, I know. I will hit my goal of 5 books, especially now that I have a goal. I'm more than half way through my current book "Cell" by Stephen King and after that I have 3 books I'm really looking forward to.
In case you missed it, here's a list of the books I've read so far this year:
