I read three books for me this week, which was nice. This probably means I won’t read anything else for another month though, as I need to catch up with blogging and other tasks. Technically it looks like I have achieved my 52 books but there are 8 very short books on that list so I want to make it to 60 before I feel I’ve achieved.
Over 400 picture books read now too. It took five months to read 300 unique books, and another five to read the next 100 unique books! I very much doubt we’ll get to 450 before the end of the year, then I’ll reset the count for 2014 🙂
Today we collected some library reservations, the first time I’ve ever reserved anything. It was wonderfully easy, so I shall be doing that a lot more in future. This year I have bought too many books, I think next year’s aim will be to buy as few as possible. We do very well out of review books and if I can cut costs, I can hopefully fund postage to offer more giveaways as a thank-you to blog readers. We can’t keep every book, no matter how I’d love to!
