Books Read in 2009 (Week One)

Everyone's posts at the end of the year about the books they'd read impressed me. I've never managed to keep track of the books I've read, although once I tried to keep track of the ones I owned. (My sister and I got bored after putting a couple hundred into the database.)

This year I'm making an effort to keep track. In order to make it easier on myself, I'll keep a week-by-week account. Maybe.

Week One

Book Cover

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (library)
Masquerade (Blue Bloods, Book 2) by Melissa de la Cruz (library)
Love, Stargirl (sequel to Stargirl) by Jerry Spinelli (library)

Book Cover

I reread the Rob Thurman books in anticipation of DEATHWISH (3 March 08). How I wish it were coming even sooner.

  1. Wow you read a lot so far. Good start!

    I haven't been able to read much thanks to AP Psych. :'(

  2. Wow, that's a lot for one week! I'm impressed.

  3. You should try Goodreads.com it really helps you to keep track!

  4. Wow. You're a fast reader. And I agree on the Goodreads -- it's what I use.

  5. That's actually a little slow for a week with no school.

    I'm on Goodreads, but guess I'm not using it properly. I'd at least find it hard to mark when I reread stuff - there's some books I read several times a year.

  6. wow you´re fast! In this first week I had only re-read Jinx by Meg Cabot and I´m not finished it yet (but almost) :p

    look, I´m new in Blogger (I´m only used to Livejournal) so I was trying to reply to your comment at my post, but I didn´t find any link to ''reply'', so here I am:

    I haven´t read This Lullaby yet (but I will) I almost buy it last month, and bought Tantalize instead. But I´d read Just Listen, though, and I didn´t like the male protagonist. Don´t know why, but since the begining I pictured him like a neonazi.

  7. Great blog! Thanks for finding me.

  8. There's a button where you can edit your review on goodreads. If you click on it, it brings up your review box. Right above the save button is a button that says more options, if you click on it there's a space that allows you to enter the number of times you've read a book.

  9. omg. that is a ton for one week. i've read hardly anything so far. i feel so unaccomplished!! lol


  10. Wow you have read 13 books in one week...dang women you are a speed reader!!!! Shoot, you read like my husband does...I bet the library has a hard time keeping up with you, I know they have a hard time with my husband!
    Thanks for sharing and no wonder you have problems keeping track of them!
