Books read in 2004  
I started to use a book cataloguing tool to track what I read in May 2004, so here are some stats for what I've read in 2004 since then. I categorised them into Fiction (I own), Borrowed (seems to have been fiction only so far), Non-fiction, Baen Free Library and Webscriptions (which seems to be empty so far). I'm not entirely convinced that May doesn't include some of April and November seems a little low, though it was when Ellen was visiting so maybe that's got something to do with it :)

Wow, you read far more than I did, I feel belittled.
Margaretpling on January 16th, 2005 11:15 am (UTC)
I just read fast ... and most of it's fiction and SF at that, so it's hardly impressive ;)
Sathsath on January 16th, 2005 11:19 am (UTC)
Yeah but I only read one non-fiction last year, so it's impressive to me!
Onyxonyx_uk on January 16th, 2005 11:05 am (UTC)
That is a lot of books.....I have probably managed about 25 this year.....a very small amount in comparison :S

I sometimes feel a bit daunted by books. So many books to read...only one life time.
Margaretpling on January 16th, 2005 11:15 am (UTC)
Like I said to Sath ... I just read fast, that and I commute on the train so have plenty of time each day to read in :)
Robdreema on January 16th, 2005 11:35 am (UTC)
agreed, when I worked in edinburgh and commuted on the train, that would give you near an hour each way in which to make a serious dent in a book
Ruheruhe on January 17th, 2005 02:53 pm (UTC)
I'm probably at least that many - thanks to the perfect length of commute.

I also occassionally read a bunch of children/youth novels that I can crank out in about 45 minutes a piece.
