Recap - 2009 Reading Log
KristieJ inspired me to post a recap of my 2009 reading. It turns out I read 125 books this year, the least amount since I started keeping a reading log in 2002. This sort of surprised me since I have been unemployed this year, but looks like I spent more time job searching and attending school than reading. Go figure.
Here's how it breaks down by date published:
All the rest: 75 (ranging from 1982 - 2005)
58 out of 125 were from my TBR pile. The rest were newly bought and immediately read (I don't count these toward my TBR) or were library books. I don't buy hardback so I must get them from the library.
I don't have patience with books I hate so I mark them as DNF. One surprise: I really disliked Beth Kery's Wicked Burn which lots of bloggers loved. I love erotic romance but this one did nothing for me. Not sure I'll try her again.
My favorite 2009 books were all historical romances:
The Madness of Ian MacKenzie by Jennifer Ashley
Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas
To Beguile a Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt
I start back to school tomorrow for Winter Quarter and it's going to be hard to keep up with my blog and reading. I'll try to keep you posted.
