Reading goal update

As of this very moment I have finished 12 books out of a goal of fifty for the year. I am just over half-way done with three more. Assuming I finish those three before the month is over (easily doable) my total will be 15 books in three months, with 35 left.

At the rate I am reading, which is an average of five per month, I will have finished 60 by the end of the year.

I have to say that I have read little "light reading" so far this year. I consider a book I can finish in a day, or two at most, to be light reading. Some of the monsters I've slogged through took me close to two months (like Cutting for Stone).

I think once I am done with the parenting books on my list and A Million Little Pieces (hello feel-good-hit-of-the-year!) I am going to go back to reading some YA novels I have been looking forward to, like the second and third in the series The Forest of Hands and Teeth. I am also looking forward to Sarah Dessen's new novel What Happened to Goodbye, which is being released just in time for me to take it to Maui. Whee!!!!

Oh, but there are so many more! I want to start reading the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, and finally-- finally!-- read the YA novels I picked up last Fall at the public library's book sale. I may never get to them.

Every so often I get the itch to re-read a Twilight novel, too. Oh, if only there were more time.
