Bookworm Report, May 2006

Finally, I'm able to share that I've met my goal of reading more non-fiction. Three titles appear on the list this time. One was a writing craft book that was more delightful than I anticipated it to be. Another resulted in some great research; an unintentional side effect that I quite like. The third change my opinion on a major business in a major way.

I'll leave it to my reviews for you to figure out which was what. In case you can't tell by the titles themselves.

Bookworm Review
Year Pages Books
2001 4,659 20
2002 1,517 5
2003 3,803 8
2004 3,977 11
2005 3,417 7
2006 3,340 10

For the year, I've read 55 books, or 18,008 pages, which averages to 11 books a month, or 3,602 pages per month, and an average book length of 327 pages.

I still have some other non-fiction books to finish and review. I'm thinking of banning myself from the Oshkosh Public Library's online reserve system in order to clear out the TBR stack by my bedside. But then I read a great review of another title and it goes on the list. I need a job where I can read all day.

Let me qualify that. A job where I can read whatever I want all day.
