The Year of Books

I love books. LOVE books. I love to read. This past year I have kind of lost my time and troubles in reading. This year I read 67 books. I know that is a lot.  In past years I read around 56 and 40 something. I started keeping track 3 years ago and have come to love my book journals. I usually write a short page about the book/what I thought about the book. I also give it a letter grade.  I sometimes include what is also going on in my life. I can tell when things are busy (no books listed) or if I am on vacation (lots of books read) or if I am really stressed (TONS of books).    But I am happy with what I read, how I spent my extra time and characters I met.

I am so jealous that you find so much time to read, and I love your book journal idea. Every time I hear you say you do that, I think it is such a great idea.
