400 Books in 2009!

Ye gods! I finished my 400th book of 2009 today!!!!

I honestly cannot believe I have read this many in one year. And it's only the middle of October! I still have 2.5 months to go! 500 books is looking VERY attainable as I'm about to start another reading challenge on Paperback swap and then the 24 hour readathon is next week. Although I have a feeling around mid November to early December things will start to slow down due to finals and papers as the semester closes. So yeah....I'm just amazed with myself. I was thinking I'm really going to try to get 500 books because this will most likely be the last year in my life that I will ever be able to do this. Next year I will be trying to get a job in my field, plus in the next few years I'll probably want kids so my reading time will definitely be cut short. So I'm going to enjoy it while I can!

  7. I'm a slow reader and do good to get 100 in during a normal year. There's so much more good reading out there than I'll ever get to, so good for you, Deborah! I'm just curious - how do you do a challenge on Paperback Swap?
