Last week, I mentioned several ideas about giving my 2009 reading and blogging some direction. I'm not very good with goals, but I keeping trying! Here are a few more thoughts on the subject.
1. I opened the 1001 Books spreadsheet and found that I've only read 22 of the books! That means that I would have to read about 25 books a year until I die to finish the list. Between the books that aren't available at my library and the books that don't appeal to me, I figure that I can chop the list in half. An acquaintance of mine is also pulling books from the list so maybe I will be more motivated if I have someone with whom I can discuss the books.
2. As of today, I have 112 books on my Goodread TBR list. It was less than that at the beginning of 2009, but I keep adding more books. I use my TBR list to keep track of any books I hear about on TV or radio, so I will probably keep adding books. I just want to see if I can have it below 112 books by the end of the year.
