A lot are YA or kids, but I work in the Kids section of a bookstore, so that's what catches my eye usually. I actually left out quite a few books I read if they were just a simple picture book I read in two minutes at work. I included the ones that I own and read because I love, or the ones I read (several times) for storytime at work. I balanced them out with several books that were 500+ pages. My goal is still 200 books this year, but with my first little one on the way, I'm not sure if it'll be harder (less time to read) or easier (more kid's books being read).

I'd like to re-read the Anne of Green Gables series this year, and read the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell. Those'll be next on my list.

Wow I am envious! Are you a fast reader?

I feel like I am reading so slow this year being my goal is 150 I should be ahead of where I am now.

OMG, The Dollhouse Murders scared the bejesus out of me when I was a kid!

Me too!

Haha, I'd never read it, but I always heard people talk about it. So when I found it for a buck, I thought I'd give it a read. :)

Last year this time I was at 50 books...I miss those days. Now I'm working 2.5 jobs and I'm not even at 20 yet.

I think I've only read three books so far this year, but I am also writing one. Maybe you will read it someday, that would be cool.

i'm impressed. i wish i had more time to read this year, especially because that's all i really enjoy doing when i have 'me' time.

you know, i have survivor and i haven't even bothered to read it. actually, i have most of chuck's books and i haven't read them! i haven't read a chuck book in 3 years. how is waiter rant? do you recommend it? it peaks my interest.

Waiter Rant was okay... near the end it got kind of lame. I was looking more for funny stories about customers, and there were lots, but at the end the writer started getting all depressing about how he was wasting his life, etc. Worth a read, but I wouldn't have bought it.
