It is quite obvious I bought more books than I read, way more! But I ordered a bunch of books for my challenges for 2009. 21 books are definitely for challenges, the two audio books are from I have a subscription, so I get two audio books each month, and two of the books (One Bad Apple and Eggs In Purgatory) are group reads for a reading group.


  1. Kathrin, my summary is the same- three times as many books added as read! Probably not alone in this, I imagine.

  2. Rebecca, I think you're right. We most likely aren't the only ones adding way more than we read.
    I just hope the year won't continue like that. I already have huge shelving problems - no clue where to add all those books... LOL
