>Over on Ravelry, I’ve been keeping a list of books read in 2009 … something that I always have the best of intentions of doing, and something that just never happens.
Until this year
My aim was to read an average of one book per week not counting pattern books, rounded down to 50 for the whole year
I haven’t quite reached that target yet, what with it only being August and all, but still have made a sizeable dint in it, so here’s the list to date:

Goal – 50 books

January:

Dead Beat: Jim Butcher
White Knight: JB
Proven Guilty JB
Witches Abroad: TP
Lords and Ladies: TP
A Stroke of Midnight: Laurell K Hamilton

A Touch of Frost: LKH

The Harlequin – LKH
Blood Noir – LKH
Micah and Strange Candy – LKH
Interesting Times – TP

Beasts In my Belfry – Gerald Durrell

Devil’s Food – Kerry Greenwood ( reread )

so a grand total thus far of 47 books … and … okay … a lot of ’em are hardly great literature but so what?
I’ve enjoyed them
