yup, just from this year. I started the 1st book on New Years day! This is the first year I kept track, I wish I had done it before I had my daughter, it would have been so much longer! Of course my 2 year old does not let me read much during the day!

Terrific list of books! What did you think of To Serve Them All My Days? And have you seen the BBC miniseries adapted from it? I had a horrible time with Certain Girls -- that one I threw at the wall. But I loved Little Earthquakes.

Mrs. Morland, you should join Goodreads. There's 100 book challenge group you might like to join. I'm not 100% sure I'll make it unless I cheat and pick up some shorties instead of my usual 500 + page reads :o

Telynor-I did not know about the miniseries, I'll have to add that to netflix. I love BBC productions, I just finished the Cazalets and loved it! I loathed Certain Girls, but i have liked her other ones so far. Have you read Good Night nobody?

Misfit-I am on Goodreads, I'll have to look for that group. Is sometimes think I should count some of my books twice because they are so long!

Vanessa-I LOVED the Foreign Field, and I am so sad I have to wait a whole nother year. I know it's morbid but I sometimes think how terrible it would be if I died and never found out what happened to the Morlands...

Annis... I have a 2 year old, so in theory I should not be reading much at all but, I work 16 hours a week at a local college's reference desk in the library. When I am not helping students, my time is my own. So I read. It's pretty sweet! I wish I had kept track before my daughter was born, I had a 1.5 hour commute on the train every day, so I read a ton then. :D
