50 Books in the Past 6 Months?

Yesterday, I was filling out a survey that asked how many books I've read in the past year. I hopped over to Goodreads to count the books on my Read shelf. According to what I've entered, I've finished 50 books since January 2009. That's crazy! To be fair, several of the titles were audiobooks, cookbooks, or YA books, but that was still a lot. For the same period last year, I only read 9 books and that includes all of the categories I mentioned.

I've been mentally chastising myself for falling down on my reading goals, but clearly I'm reading more than I thought. This gives me hope that I can accomplish my current goal of whittling down my TBR list, especially since several of the titles are in the same easy-to-read categories that I zipped through during the first half of this year. Now that I know reading the books isn't the problem, I need to work on writing my impressions of the books and posting them to the blog in a timely manner.

Wow, that is a lot. Good for you!

Nicely done. I'm trying to avoid getting pulled into the numbers game, though, as there are several books on my TBR list that are quite long.
