Musing Mondays – Jan. 3, 2011

How many books did you read in 2010? If you had a reading goal, did you meet it? What books are you most looking forward to reading for 2011 (either new, OR ones that have sat on your shelves for a while)?

Okay, so I read 67 books in 2010. I didn’t really have a set goal for 2010. I had signed up for the 100+ Reading Challenge, but it was more of a guideline than a challenge for me. I think the number I had in the back of my head for most of the year was 75. So I’m not at all upset with how many books I was able to finish out the year with. For 2011, I really want to get caught up on some more of my series (as well as hopefully start some new ones!). There are also a few books from favorite authors that are being released in 2011 that I am looking forward to (including Alex Kava, Tess Gerritsen, Chelsea Cain). I’m looking forward to seeing what James Patterson puts out this year (I know the 10th in the WMC is due for this spring, I believe). But I’m also looking forward to cleaning out my shelves this year some more. In 2010 I was able to read 45 books off of my shelves, and of those only 14 were acquired in 2010, leaving 31 books coming off my shelves that had been there for over a year – I would love to accomplish more of that this year. So I guess there are a few particular books being released in 2011 that I’m looking forward to, but I’m really looking forward to reading off of my TBR mountain.
