It’s been a little quiet around here lately!Â There’s a couple of reasons for that.
One, December was a pretty low-volume reading month for me.Â I only finished 8 books. So, not many reviews!Â I do have some more challenges to post about in the coming week. I also did finish Eclipse by Richard North Patterson this week, so that review is coming.
Two, most of my spare time this past week has been spent cataloguing books.Â I came back from Thanksgiving and Christmas with a lot of books my parents and in-laws were ready to get rid of.Â I’m now selling stuff on half.com, so if you’re interested in checking out my inventory, it’s here!Â I don’t expect to really make much money, it’s more about finding homes for the books.Â They’re also listed on PaperbackSwap, plus a lot more.Â I had a lot of book club editions that can’t be sold on half.com. So, everything’s now catalogued, but it’s still in piles on my living room floor and on my kitchen table. Tomorrow night, I must shelve!
2008 in Review
I didn’t quite reach my reading goals this year, but 107 books is nothing to sneeze at! My goal each year is to read one more book than the year before, so my goal for 2009 will be 108 books.
I don’t think I could possibly choose a favorite book that I read in 2008, but I can pick out my favorite for each month:
February – 2008: #18 – Triptych (Karin Slaughter)
October – 2008: #89 – Nefertiti (Michelle Moran)
November – 2008: #95 – Sweetheart (Chelsea Cain)
Here’s to another great year of reading!
