This year was not one of my better years. I don’t really know why that is. Sure, we had a lot going on this weekend — both Friday and Saturday nights, and some Saturday afternoon — but maybe it was I was reading slower than I usually do. I do know I didn’t stay up as late as I usually do. Ah, the joys of getting older.
So, this year, my stats are way low:
I got 4 1/2 books done from start-to-finish, I started one and abandoned it for later (The Book of Unknown Americans) and finished up one I was already reading (Graceling). I read for 15 1/2 hours (ouch), blogged/did social media 2 1/2 hours, and saw The Fault in Our Stars which I’m counting for 1 hour (Thanks, Pam!) for a grand total of 19 hours. I didn’t even make the 20 minimum. Perhaps next year. (I’ll still donate the $25 to RIF. So there’s that.)
I did enjoy the books I picked to read, especially Everything Leads to You. And I did enjoy focusing on more diverse books, which is a welcome break for me. And I reminder that I need to branch out more.
Thanks, Pam, for hosting this, and for choosing to focus on diversity!
