February 5, 2010
I rolled over my book log to the new year today, which meant going through last year’s chronological list to group it into categories. In 2008, I had a separate category for Nonfictionâ€”Crafting, though it was only two books; in 2009, I read only one crafting book cover to cover so rolled that into Nonfictionâ€”General and broke out Nonfictionâ€”Real Estate for the three books I read before we bought our condo. I only read one historical romance in 2009, so that didn’t need its own category, either. I read a total of 57 books in 2009, which is pretty good, I think, considering how many other things I’ve got going. So far in 2010, I’ve finished five, which puts me on about the same pace. I continue to read more fiction than non-, probably because I feel bombarded by information but love escaping into other people’s stories.
