I'm pretty sure I've read more than this. I grabbed these out of the Calibre program, which I use to read on my laptop, but there have been paperbacks, too. It's kind of mandatory as a writer that you read. It's been hard to squeeze in the time, and I miss having my nose stuck in a book every day, but I think I've done okay!

As you can tell, I didn't read any provocative titles. My reading tastes are the equivalent of comfort foods. If I had to pick a favorite out of those titles, I'd have to choose If Tomorrow Comes. It's the third or fourth time I've read it.

You don't need to list them in the comments (well, unless you want to!) but tell us how many books you've read this year. Go with a ball park estimate if you don't have time to check! Or tell us the name of your favorite.


  1. I think I've only read about 5 or 6 this year, which is awful. I LOVE to read, but I'm so bad about putting reading on the back burner. I need to be better about this this new year. I'm working on "Catching Fire" right now :)

    1. That's on my TBR list, which is huge. I've started to force myself into relaxing at least one day a week. It ends up being Wednesday, but wow it's harder than I expected, which tells me how much it's needed.

      I've seen your weekend list of things you do. It's impressive that you can breath most days never mind sit down and read!
