Amidst the Pseudocarnage that Is my Home

at the moment, with scattered skeletal remains of packing materials and dismembered cardboard boxes, a brief moment of glory stands out.  Thanks to all the audio book listening that I have been doing the last few weeks and in spite of the fact that I haven’t had the time to read an actual dead tree or electronic book with my eyes—at least without feeling guilty—I’ve finished my 125 books for the Goodreads 2012 Book Challenge!  Of course, this doesn’t get any of our things moved up the road or UNpacked at the other end, but I’m still glad I did it.  Some of the reading was fluff, and some was modern literature.  I may not do this challenge next year because I have some personally designed reading challenges in mind, but I will inevitably try to read in some organized way, probably in a way that contributes to more than just number of books read.  The goals are fun.

Congratulations!! I have #116 and #117 in progress, so I don't htink I'll make my 125. But I passed my 109 of last year so I'm happy. Plus I've read many more serious books this year - the two in progress are both nonfiction - one on the fall of Rome, and one about the nurses on Bataan and Corregidor during WWII.
