One of my goals for 2012 was to read 75 books this year and I have succeeded! I actually got to 76 books (at the time of writing this blog) and will probably finish a few more before the year is out. The breakdown went like this:
General Fiction: 20
Classics/Classic Authors: 7
Job Search: 5
General Non-Fiction: 2
Unsurprisingly, I read mostly fiction… but I didn’t think I had read as many religion-oriented books as I actually did this year. I didn’t read nearly as many editing/writing-related books as I wanted to, but that’s mostly because they’re difficult to find in the library and I don’t like buying books because they tend to sit around in my house and never get read. (Nothing like the deadline of a “return this book by” date to get you motivated to read!)
How many books did you read so far this year? Do you keep a count? Do you read a lot of a particular type of book or genre?
