This was my second year of attempting to read 52 books in 52 weeks. And, as in 2008, I met the overall goal.
In 2009, I read 71 books. This was down a bit from 2008, when I read 83, but that’s basically in line with my goal. I had planned to read fewer comics (and did; 41 in 2009 vs. 54 in 2008), which was likely to reduce the overall number of books.
The total breakdown of my 2009 reading was:
Graphic Novel: 41
Short Story Collections: 9
My other achieved goals included reading more short story collections (9 in 2009 vs. 4 in 2008) and more novels (12 in 2009 vs. 10 in 2008). I’d also planned to read 3 business books this year, but, as in 2008, read just 1.
My 2010 reading goals are:
- Keep the number of comics read about level
- Read double-digit non-fiction and short story collections
- Read two business books
I’ll check in in early 2011 with the results.
