"Musing Mondays"

 This week’s musing asks…
How many books do you read in a week? Month? Year?

Each year is different. This year so far I have read 117 books. However, last year (2010) I read somewhere around 70 books.  This year (2011) I guess on the average I read 2.5 books each week. I will probably be reading at least 1 book a week in 2012, depending on how many pages the book has. Chunkier books will take longer. I don't plan on reading as many books in 2012, but we'll see.

Many years ago when I was raising a young family, and doing my farm chores,  I joined the Reader's Digest Condensed Book Club, so if I found a few spare minutes I had something to look forward to, to read. I still love those books and look for them at yard sales, and library sales. I actually have told my local library if anyone donates them I would buy them, since they no longer display them on their shelves.
I keep track of the books I've read this year... here. 

How many books do you read each year?


  1. It looks like I will not outdo 2011's count, but the month is still early.

  2. Wow! You've read many books this year! A list is a great way to keep track of them all. :)

  3. Wow Gigi that's impressive reading.
    I've read 61 books and 27 short stories this year so far. I can never seem to reach my goal of 100 books per year.

  4. I did much better this year than last year and will most like surpass 100. I didn't get that far last year. You've already done well this year, Gigi, and the year isn't over yet!
