Booking Through Thursday: But, Whose Counting?
Booking Through Thursday
1. How many books would you say you read in an average month?
2. In a year?
3. Over the last five years?
4. The last 10?
Last year was a fluke for me reading-wise. I never dreamed I would be reading as much as I was able to. This year I seem to be falling back into my old pattern, which is to read 5 to 6 books on average per month. Last year I read 115 books total. That won't happen again this year. I say that not because I am aiming lower, but simply because it is not realistic for me. Since I began keeping track of the books I read in November of 2003, I have read 308 books. I could not even begin to tell you how many I have read in 10 years. My total each year fluctuates, and so I'm not even sure multiplying any of my yearly totals by 10 would necessarily come out right. Give me another few years and I'll have a better sample to draw from.
