Reading Fail

The other day I finished reading my 24th book in 2009, a far cry from the 50 I had hoped to complete. Of course, back in January I was working a different position at my job, one that allowed me plenty of time to read. Along came the recession and did away with my position for the time being, necessitating the move back to my old job, one that gives me NO time to read. Thus, my reading really took a dive this year. I've had to read (gasp) at home, rather than at work! That means reading time has to compete with writing time and movie time...and oh yeah, spending time with the wife. Next year doesn't look to be any different, so I'm not even gonna bother keeping a list.

Saw this the other day and it made me smile:

I'll get too depressed if I try to tally the books I read! I really must be stricter on myself this year.

24 books really isn't bad. I'm struggling to get my 50 in (3 more by the end of the week), but even if I don't, I still read more than I did the year before. That's the real goal. :)

I read more books than I have in years, but I know I didn't get anywhere close to fifty.
