15 July 2011

We've reached the middle of the year. How many books have you read?

So, we've reached the beginning of July 2011.

I have to say I haven't read nearly the number of books I normally read by this time of the year.
Reading a certain number of books hasn't been as much of my focus this year though.
I intended to focus on reading more classics this year.

Last year, for instance, I read 78 books. That would be 39 books by mid-year.

So far I have read 25 books in 2011.
One contributing factor to that is that I have read five classics this year.
Last year I read six classics but two of them were very short and not even equal the effort of one complete classic.

Here is the breakdown of the books I have completed reading this year:

Memoirs ~ 4
Non Fiction ~ 4
Classics ~ 5
Humor ~ 2
Juvenile Fiction ~ 5
Fiction ~ 3
Biography ~ 2
25 Titles

Classic titles I've read this year:
Emma by Jane Austen
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
My Man Jeeves by Wodehouse
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
