Bookworm Report, February 2006

Another frigid month has come and gone. We're that much closer to warm weather and long bike rides. Sanity will return.

The List, if you please.

Bookworm Review
Year Pages Books
2001 3,049 11
2002 3,409 8
2003 1,911 5
2004 2,597 8
2005 923 3
2006 3,730 12

For the year, I've read 23 books, or 7,164 pages, which averages to 12 books a month, or 3,582 pages per month, and an average book length of 311 pages.

I should start a FAQ section as I get this question all the time: "How do you read so much in one month?" I'll tell you my secrets, but no judgements can be passed. I read fast and I don't clean except for what will kill us. My kids watch television while I read. The reading fast is the biggest trick. When I was single, I averaged 18 books a month. I didn't have television at the time. It's all about priorities.

And while I love my kids to death, I can only watch Blue's Clues and Thomas the Tank Engine so many times before my head explodes. Yes, I do play with them, but during a 30 minute video, I can read 50-60 pages. See, it's the reading fast that does it.
