Re: What are you reading? (February 2010)

I just did up the number of pages that I read in 2009, using Amazon.com as the page count, and came up with a shade over 35,000 pages (35,066 to be precise). Obviously, this is overstated when you consider how page numbering works in a lot of books (empty pages, pictures, table of contents, etc), but it is a decent indicator of what I read.

In January 2010, it was 2,107, excluding the book that I started in but didn't finish yet (John Dies At The End).

I need to recharge with some light books after my recent readings, so I am going to dive into my James Patterson list. Nobody is better for lightweight fluff:

Re: What are you reading? (February 2010)

Didn't get too far into the Quickie yet, since I realized that I had completely skipped Void Moon in my Michael Connelly readathon. I still have a few books left to go, but this one was a fairly early standalone (for the most part, aside from a bit part in The Narrows).

I have had this for years but I am one of those who have always hated clowns. Took some resolve to make myself read. But worth it as It is a great story.
