The only problem with this is that I haven’t actually finished the first three on this list. Hence the 95%. If I can put down my iphone long enough I can plow through these in a matter of days. I guess it’s just all about willpower at this point. 23 months ago

...And the trick is when you start the first line of the book, keep reading until the end __23 months ago
Reading 12 books in a year may not seem like much to some but I don’t read much and I’ve always wanted to read more. Last year I read 8 so I figured a book a month for this year would be a good place to start.
I’ve already been working on this since the beginning of the year. As of today I’ve read 6 and am currently reading #7 so I’m right on track! Maybe I’ll even get more that twelve in!
Here’s what I’ve read so far…..
Free For All: How Linux and the Free Software Movement Undercut The High Tech Titans
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
Flowers For Algernon (currently reading)
Only Three More left! If I keep up a good pace I should be able to triple this goal by the end of the year. 23 months ago
Death in the Latin Quarter by Raphael Cardetti.
Another history/adventure novel. Quite liked it, especially since it is set in Paris (I was there last year in June) and it was so cool to reminisce about that time. Definitely both well-written and a page-turner.
There are some annoyances though, such as everyone vaguely attractive in Paris having ‘artfully tousled hair’, LOL. 2 years ago
I haven’t done much reading this past month, but I’m pretty sure I’m at least 2/3rds down to completing this goal.
Go Ask Alice
It Is Well Within My Soul
The Walking Dead: Days Gone Bye (comic books count!)
The Count of Monte Cristo
The Universe In A Single Atom
... Huh, I guess I’m only half way done. I blame my iPhone. I haven’t put that thing down since I bought it six weeks ago. I really have to start weening myself. 2 years ago
I’ve read the following books this year:
1. “The Good Earth”
2. “An Anthropologist on Mars”
3. “How to Live on 24 Hours a Day”
5. “The Poisonwood Bible”
6. “No Nest for the Wicket”
Six more to go before I reach my goal for the year! :) 2 years ago
