A Reading Update

As you all may recall, my reading resolution for 2010 is 40,000 pages. I am doing quite well on it, or at least, keeping pace. As of yesterday, I am 17.4875% done (that is 6995 pages) with 16.4384% of the year gone.

March 1st also marked the end of the Winter Challenge and the beginning of the Spring. From December 1st to Feb 28th I read the following books:

77 Love Sonnets
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking-Glass
American Gods
The Amnesiac
Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast
Blue Sky July: A True Tale of Love, Light and 'Impossible Odds'
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
Catching Fire (Hunger Games, #2)
A Christmas Carol
Extras (Uglies, #4)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
The Hindi-Bindi Club
The Host
House of Leaves
Kim (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
Living History
Oryx and Crake
The Remains of the Day
The Stranger
The Tale of Despereaux: Being the Story of a Mouse, a Princess, Some Soup and a Spool of Thread
Tender Buttons
Tenth Circle
The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University
Water for Elephants
We Are On Our Own

That makes 31 in all, for 10941 pages and 355 points. These should all be clickable links if you are interested in any, or you can just ask and I would be happy to talk about them more!!

i never asked how you liked Water for Elephants, though maybe its on your goodreads review, eh?

If your goal is to read 10K pages, then shouldn't almost 7K pages be 70%? Wouldn't 17.5% be 1750 pages?

Either way, I'm totally impressed :)

Laurelyn - water for elaphants was OK, would have preferred there be a more realistic twist at the end.

Allison - your math is correct, I had a typo in the post. my goal is 40K, not 10K. I corrected it.
