2012 In Reading

Last year, instead of setting a goal for the number of books I wanted to read, I set a goal of reading 10,000 pages.  I figured that trying to reach a book quota would just inspire me to read a number of short or easy books, and I wanted to set the bar a little higher.  Things got busy in the second half of the year (hello, wedding planning!), so I didn’t end up reaching my goal.  I made it three-quarters of the way, though, which is nothing to sneeze at, especially considering that I tackled Kristin Lavransdatter.  Next year, I’d like to go heavier on the non-fiction; I just need to find books that are both interesting (sorry, Belloc) and worthwhile (sorry, celebrity autobiographies).
