Those close to me know already that for several years now I have been keeping a reading log. It is a very OCD thing to do I guess, and who knows where I got the idea, but I love it. I keep track of every new book I read, when I started it, when I finished it, and how many pages it was.

Here are the stats for 2008:

I read 36 books I hadn't read before, that doesn't include re-reading books.
I read a total of 13,643 pages.

Began 2008 with: Nefertiti by Michelle Moran
Ended 2008 with: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Shortest book: Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson - 198 pages
Longest book: The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray - 819 pages

Oldest book: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens - 1859
Newest book: Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer - 2008 (Though I read five books that were so freshly published.)

I am starting off 2009 by reading Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, which was recommended to me by the sexy librarian herself, Stephanie E.J. Long. I am looking forward to a fun year where I will endeavor to read more books than I read in 2008.

It's fun that you keep track of the books you read like that. Interesting to go back and see what you've done. I hope you find lots of entertaining books for 2009.
