100 Books in 2009

Yes, I know I'm quite behind getting this list started, but I have definitely (as you readers can attest) been reading a lot this year, so I figured I'd combine my posts and see if I am even close to 100.

Thanks to J. Kaye's Book Blog I can participate with hundreds of readers and maintain my list for everyone to see! I just read about this on a blog that I follow, but now I can't seem to find the post, to make reference to that blogger, as well. I'll keep my eye out and try to find out who it was!

Uhm, Wow. 33 is pretty good, but, well, if I want to hit 100 I'd better get a move on, since it is almost October already! Yikes! I think I'll take it if I make it to 50, but hey, I'll just see how it goes. Since I'm currently reading like 2-4 books I should be able to add more to this list soon!


  1. This is great! I think I'll participate too when I get a chance to put together my list! I noticed you can include children's books too - I think I probably read 500 children's books a year! LOL!

  2. You are doing great! Some really good reads, there. Although I just couldn't get all the way through The Senator's Wife myself...not sure why, just never connected with the characters I guess. Good luck with the rest of the year. :)

  3. Did you post a review on your number 1? It sounds hilarious! I recently read the Secret Desires of a Soccer Mom and was hoping my hubby would notice it.... but alas, he did not! lol
