2009 Reading List

Monday, January 4, 2010

Since we are only a few days into the new year, I wanted to post a little note about the books I've been reading, especially considering this blog is dedicated to two of my dearest passions (books and plants).

number of books read in 2009: 25

number of books read in 2008: 26

percentage by male authors: 12
percentage by female authors: 13
fiction as percentage of total: 56
non-fiction as percentage of total: 44
percentage of total liked: 48 (4-5 stars)
percentage of total ambivalent: 40 (3 stars)
percentage of total disliked: 12 (1-2 stars)

I got through 2/3 of Rand last year, which I'm hoping to finish up in the next month and for the first time I delved into more non-fiction/memoir than I'm use to. My bedside table teeters with piles I've accumulate and I've finally rejoined a book club, after a year hiatus. A couple books I loved reading this past year were, Diane Rehm's memoir, and the much acclaimed fiction piece by Mary Ann Shaffer.

I'm determined to read and write more this year. Here's to an insatiable appetite for page after page of unmitigated reading in 2010! Enjoy.


  1. awesome. I'm already counting down to when grad school is done and I can read for pleasure again.
