Chi-Chi A You are a reading machine, Ben!! If I could just accomplish reading 100 books in the year!!


message 2: by Ben (new)

Ben Babcock You’re not doing too bad yourself, and I see you increased your goal from last year. So you could very well get up to 100 one of these days.

For me, it is largely just a matter of priority. While it’s true that I read quickly (that comes with practice), I am no speed reader. I just devote a significant portion of my free time and spare moments to reading. Those little bits add up.

Julie 140!!! Congrats :D


message 4: by Ben (new)

Ben Babcock Thanks. It’s not quite accurate, because it’s counting a couple of books I “read” but didn’t finish. I have two more books read but not reviewed and two more books to read, and then I’ll be at my goal. ^_^
