Inspired by Paul Randal reading 100 books last year, I set out to read 100 books this year, 2010. I figured that I come pretty close to that number anyway but this would formalize it. From my starting point, I’m in week 33 meaning that I need have read somewhere near 66 books. I’ve finished 71 and expect to have book 72 finished before the week “ends” on Friday. Even better I have books 73-78 already in house, no waiting on the library. I also now have a large enough backlog that coming up with a 100 books to read won’t be a problem.
I track my books through Library Thing. You’re welcome to follow along. The 100 read so far this year is here. According to Karl Rove, George W. Bush read 95 books in a year on a bet. I’m betting I can beat that.
