    I didn't know there was such a desire for more specific reading statistics! (BTW, it would be 1500 per month, 346.15 per week, 49.31 per day, 2.05 per hour)

    Does this give new meaning to reading between the lines?

    Time to start a new list (LISTS... :drool: ) of books.

    First book to add to that 2012 books read list (LISTS... :drool: ) is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I was supposed to read a steampunk genre sci-fi book for my book club, and I noticed she was on some steampunk categories. But I apparently chose a book that didn't fit the genre. And it wasn't good, either (not a reliable suspension-of-belief aspect, weak and stereotype characters, predictable plot), even for a YA novel. Oh well.

    Wow, I suddenly feel like a slacker. Not even my wife hit numbers that high in 2011. She joined a "50 books a year" club and fell just shy of the goal (44). The site did give her honorable mention for posting reviews for every book!

    This year she has already gotten to 12, so she's well on her way.

    I hit 12 last year...reading, add a few audiobooks to that, I'm around 16 total.

    I wish I had more time to read books, I have a couple I bought a while back I still haven't gotten to...they are still on hold.

    I ordered my first book of the year from B&N a few days ago "Generation Me". It should arrive soon. It comes highly recommended, and I'm really looking forward to it.
    May the force be with you.

    I have several colleagues and friends who blew MY totals away.

    The dearth of reading time once school resumes is sad for me; I chomp down on the time in summer!

    I'm gonna have to buy a nook simple touch.
