October 2008 - September 2009 [Oct. 4th, 2008|09:59 pm]
I can't believe it's been a year since I did this, but here it goes again!

Last year, I read 17,551 pages! I exceeded my goal by almost 8,000 pages, and the year before, I only read 8,000 pages, so that was freaking awesome! I read a lot of good books, and though I didn't quite keep up with my reviews, I still wrote a lot about the books and learned a lot from a lot of them. You can go to my books read page in my info to see what I've been reading.

My goal for this next year is 12,000 pages. Again, it will be linked in my info if you ever want to check back. This list does not include re-reads or school-related materials.
All number figures are either taken from fresnolibrary.org (my county library system) or amazon.com.

I'll add that to my 'want to read' list =)
I've actually been wanting to read it for awhile, and just sort of forget about it.
