Bookworm Report, July 2007

This was a banner month of reading for me. The best, in fact, that I've had since I've been married. I can explain this anomaly, though.

For the year, I've read 97 books, or 37,150 pages, which averages to 12 books a month, or 4,644 pages per month, and an average book length of 383 pages.

Just a note, this month was a wrap up month for me. I wrapped up reading the Bible, Mansfield Park, The Pact and Judge & Jury, while two of the three Harry Potter books were re-reads. In other words, the anomaly can be explained.

But I can't promise that it won't happen again. I'm not anticipating a paradigm shift, but one never knows.

What intressting data. It's nice to see that there are other readers/bloggers who use their blog to keep track of what and how many books that they read. Now if my husband says he thinks I'm crazy doing that, I can point out that I'm not the only one.

Ok, 97 books already after 7 months... I don't get 97 books in a year. Do we need to chat about you getting a life or at least trying to tackle the Russian masters or something that will slow you down?

This is just incredible, although I have a friend who claims to read a book a day AND REMEMBERS THEM! I've tested her, but then I can't remember what I've read, so it's not much of a test, is it? You go girl!

I think the last time I came close to that tally was in our Kiddie Lit class with Prof. Menk!

*sigh* You need to get your blog world figured out--it is very sad with both of us on a semi-hiatus! Well, back to classroom work!
