If I read 76 books a year until I’m 80 years old I will have read 3,000 books.
Of course, I don’t know the actual number of books I’ve read. I only know that I’ve read or listened to approximately 82 books in the last 3 years. A few of those are books I remember reading while growing up (real books).
If I could remember all the books I read growing up the full number would probably be closer to 150, or at least I hope it would.
So basically, my depth of reading is pretty sad.
I recently started twittering about my book reading over at 3000books. I also have the domain 3000books.com, but I haven’t set anything up on it yet. When I get around to it it’ll be a book reading blog, naturally.
My most recent reads:
- The Anatomy of Peace by The Arbinger Institute (read it)
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (read it)
- Xenocide by Orson Scott Card (listened)
- Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card (listened)
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald (dailylit)
I’m still poking along at several books on dailylit: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, A Tale of Two Cities, and Little Women. Whew!
So if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go get busy reading (or listening).
