6 Month Stats/MidYear Synopsis

The linked list below runs from January 2008 through the end of June 2008. The list doesn't include four titles I read over the winter but neither listed nor reviewed but only mentioned in passing. I won't count them in my totals. I’m feeling hopelessly inadequate. :{

I checked my midyear stats for the other two years I’ve done them. End of June’07 46 books. End of June ’06 67.

This year is a scant 37. How pathetic can you get ?!

I checked the archives and in the January '08 posts I discovered I didn't post a reading goal for this year or an annual summary for 2007. Or, if I did, it's buried in a post and wasn't tagged. After a few minutes hunting and totting, I finished 64 books last year. In January 2007 I totted up 104 books read in 2006.

So, the goal this year is to, at a bare minimum, read more than last year (65+). Preferably I'd like to meet or exceed 2006's 104 books read. Not likely to happen, but it's always nice to shoot for the stars and land on the moon.
