Last year I read 35 books. I'm 40 years old so my goal this year is to read 40 books. If you want to see if I'm on track you can check my progress on this thread.

I also started a new Alphabet Challenge. The Alphabet Challenge, 26 books with authors all beginning with a different letter of the alphabet, can be found here.

About my libraryUsually I only keep a book after reading it if I love, love, love it (or as I like to say, it becomes a part of me). What you see in my virtual library are those books, an embarrassing amount of books waiting to be read, and a few books from my classroom library which is far too extensive to even begin entering in earnest.

I also enjoy wasting time using the "Read but Unowned" category. I have been a chronicler since I was a kid and have pieced together some of my reading life pre-LibraryThing through photos, journals, and lists of books I read during my summer breaks as a child. It's been fun entering them here and seeing which ones I remember!
