Science Fiction/Fantasy: 16 Anne McCaffrey group on Shelfari is mostly responsible!
“Christian” non-fiction: 4
Historical Fiction: 2 The Queen’s Governess, Wolf Hall
Audio books: 4
Obviously, I could add to this list, or break things down a little differently if I chose to do so, however, that would result in some categories having only one entry!
All in all, I’m satifistied. My ‘goal’ for the year was to try to read 52 books, averaging one per week. I also was participating in a Re-Read Challenge, which I sort of dropped the ball on as far as posting, but I re-read four more books than I said I would, just not the distribution I had planned on.
Do I have 2011 reading goals? Um…sort of.
Plan 1) do many fewer RAL’s (Read-a-longs)
Plan 2) try to read 4-6 new-to-me Classics
Plan 3) Try to read 2-4 Christian Classics or Christian non-fiction
Plan 4). Buy many fewer ‘paper’ books, using the library, Kindle, and other e-readers to accomplish
Plan 5) don’t laugh, but I’d like to read ALL of the books I have already bought, which are stacked all over the house!
