Q1 Reading Status Update

(I know, lots of blog posts today!)

So I’m 3 months into 2013, I thought I’d give you a little update as to where I’m up to.

In January I read 5 books (#6 finished on 3rd Feb) – which is less than the 7 I read in January last year. It’s more books than I read in the whole of 2008 however.

By the end of February I’d read 11 (#12 on 3rd march). It was 10 last year and I only read 14 in 2010.

Yesterday I finished my 19th book as compared to 15 this time last year. I read 19 in 2009.

So I’m on track to beat 30 for 2011, and 34 for 2012 as well as my official target of 40 for the year. But I don’t take anything for granted. I may well have a slump later in the year and not read for weeks. We’ll see. The important thing is I’m enjoying it.

My current TBR is 260 down from 263 last time I mentioned it. I have bought books since then but I’ve also read books and removed a few duplicates that were lurking in my Goodreads queue and throwing off the figures.

My currently reading list on Goodreads is up to 12 (from 10) because I’ve started a couple of books only to move on to something else quite quickly. Of all my reading goals this is the one I’m most relaxed about. Ultimately if I want to read something else I will. If I happen to have added the book I’m 20pages into to my currently reading list, ah well, never mind.

OK, that’s enough blogging and enough about books – I’m off to watch some TV.
