My 2009 completed books!

My goal is to read 50 books each year. Here are all the books I read in 2009. I wanted to make sure I didn't just read children books but a few hefty classics and politics/history/biographies... Well, I got a few of those in but still read a lot of great children books! I also really enjoy the book groups I belong to. They help me to get some variety into my reading too.

Great job. I am going to fail, but I am hoping to fail by only 5 books...the same as last year.

Yay! I'm so impressed. I was inspired last year by your goal to do 50 that I decided to make my own goal to read 20. I have one more book to go this week but I should make it. Next year I'm doing 25. Maybe someday I'll work up to 50! Merry Christmas!

uh, if you noticed..the last few are actually tiny Christmas books. I was also 5 books short.

The various posts from your family on all they are reading inspired me this year and I need to go back and count, but I think I might have actually made it to 50, also aided by a couple quick Christmas reads this last week and a few children's books with my kids.
