Reading goals

Today I finished a book. Nothing unusual in that really! This book was however book number 150 for the year which means that I am pretty much right on track for my goal of 200 books.

How am I going with my other goals?

Reading Dorothy Dunnett - well..there's still 3 months left in the year. I might get there, but I actually don't think I will!

Reading at least 15 books I owned as at January 2007 - still only 3. I have been reading lots of 2007 books recently, which is completely unconnected really but never mind!

Reading shortlists for the Booker and either the Orange or Pulitzer. - hmmm...less said on that one the better!

Blogging - well you know I am always behind in reviews so nothing new there.

Reading more Aussie authors (at least 10) - actually this is the one that I am doing better on. So far this year I have read 12 books by Aussie authors! Goal reached!

Actually, I have just posted a review by one of those Aussie authors over at Historical Tapestry - The Boar Stone by Jules Watson. Pop over and have a look!


  1. You started reading some of the Booker ones... well, you own a couple. :)

    As to books you own, that's only 3 books a month until the end of the year, still doable.

  2. Way to go, you are almost there. I myself don't have the capacity to read that much. Does audio count? Anyway, I'm having way too much fun taking my time with The Sapphire Pendant, a powerful contemporary love story. 200 is a great feat if you ask me.

  3. Wow--200 books. I might reach that goal in say 2-1/2 years! :) actually if I can reach 75 books I will be happy--I might even get a bit past that. I also want to read the Dunnett books. I have too many on the go at the moment, though, so as always it will have to wait! And I need to read more of my own books that have been sitting around a long time.
