In September and October I read 94 books! 78 of those were brand new reads, 5 were second reads, and there were 11 books I've read several times before. Given I've had an absolute book binge in September and October, you can find November and December's reads here - the target is 300 books read in 2009!!

So how many books HAVE you actually read this year? How do you have time what with working, writing, blogging and going on holiday??? ;)

Ummmmm, 2 - Spot the Dog and The Very Hungry Caterpillar (though I mostly looked at the pictures in that one)! ;p

As for work - I only work 17.5 hours a week. Writing ... yeah, that's not been going so well this year. :s Blogging - also severely reduced! As for holidays, they are perfect for reading!

I would rather my wordcount be higher though than my reading total. Maybe 2009 is the year of reading, 2010 the year of writing. *sigh*
