Good Lord, when did you have the time for all those?!?!? I KNOW you're busier than I am, and I've only got 10 down so far this year. Sheesh!

Wait, scratch that. I just checked my list. It's 13...I've read 13 so far.

Something I've been doing for a while is keeping track of every book I read, year after year, in a little notebook. There were a few times, back in highschool, when I would be reading a book, and it would suddenly become vaguely familiar. That's when I would realize I'd already read it. Darn!

It really bugs me that I can't read as fast as Julia, but she can off a typical-sized book in about three hours. I don't know how she can concentrate that long, quite frankly.
