Musing Mondays: Mid-Year Reading

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about mid-year reading…
Now that we’ve come to the middle of the year, what do you think of your 2009 reading so far? Read anything interesting that you’d like to share? Any outstanding favourites?

I am having a very slow reading year. I don't think that I will read 100 books this year. Last year I just barely made. So far, I have read 31 books. I really need to crank it, if I am going to come close to 100 books this year. Maybe I can get some reading time done on my vacation and pump up my numbers.

Challenges: I have not completed any challenges but I have read at least one book for all of my challenges except for the romance reading challenge. The plan was to read Nicholas Spark's books for the romance reading challenge, but it has not worked out yet. The review all your book challenge will not be completed because I have not reviewed all of the books I read so far.

I know part of the reason, I am having a slow reading year is that I have discovered Facebook and Twitter. For awhile they consumed all of my time. But the newness is wearing off, so maybe I can get a little more reading done. I just need to work on time management.

Reviewing my book list. These seem to be my standout books so far.

  1. Axe of Iron: The Settlers by J.A. Hunsinger
  2. Everyone is Beautiful by Katherine Center
  3. Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughan
  4. Uneasy Lies the Head by Jean Plaidy
Happy Reading

My blogging can cut into my reading time if I don't watch it. Loved Everyone Is Beautiful too.

That's part of the reason I'm avoiding Facebook and Twitter like the plague. Blogging sucks up enough of my reading time all on its own! :-)

Twitter is definitely a time sink. Thankfullly, I don't do Facebook.

Beth F. and Lezlie My sister in law got me involved with Facebook. What a great way to stay in touch she said. She is right but I think I am on it more than her.

Nise and Lezile you are so right about blogging. It does take up alot of time.

But hey if the Il budget does not pass. I may have more time all around.
