Kelly - I reached 1200 in 2011 so this is less than last year. HaHa! I lowered it so I can focus on more MG and YA....though I will probably do a lot of picture books still. And if you wonder if I eat and sleep, check out John Schu who has a goal of 2012 books for the year. :-)

Sherry I'm cutting way back this year because reading 300 books last year (no picture books) caused me to gain 20 pounds.

I read a lot of picture books or otherwise I would have to scale way back too. I also don't watch a lot of TV so maybe it balances out? Maybe should try more audiobooks while walking?

Sherry I listen to audiobooks while knitting and driving. I'm experimenting with using my Kindle with the large print setting to walk on my treadmill and read. But I did realize that for me, 300 YA and adult books caused me to neglect other areas of my life. Like you, I watch no TV!


Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy) 300 YA and adult books is a serious commitment. Fully understand the need to scale back.

Sherry I got complaints from my significant other!! :) I still don't do a lot of housework though!


Niki (Daydream Reader) Awesome job Alyson!


message 9: by Sherry (new)

Sherry I definitely did not replace some books with housework. That would be just wrong. I am working on eating better though, which is time consuming and walking and biking. I knit a sweater too!
