Yes, today is my birthday and I am spending it reading. I didn't read as much as I expected over the holidays, so now I have a stack of books that may go back to the library unread if I don't get on the ball. Luckily, several of them are light novels or knitting books that I can just flip through.
CURRENTLY READING: "Dead as a Doornail" by Charlaine Harris. I want to watch the TV show based on it (True Blood) but I don't want to run the risk of spoiling the later books. It is hard to resist the show, though, when I keep hearing so many good things about it. So I am trying to zip through this series as quickly as possible.
TBR List: My goal for 2010 isn't so much about reducing the number of titles as it is clearing out the old ones. As I said in my 2009 round-up, I have 24 books that have been on my list since 2008. I want to either read them or eliminate them by the end of 2010. I think that should be manageable.
Other than that, I will go back to adding books to my list with abandon. I had stopped for a while, but I don't see any sense in that now. Since none of these books are actually in my house, I think seeing how high my "total of books read" can get is more impressive than how low the total on my TBR list is.
