104 Books in 2005
After doing it once before (for half a year in 1999) I started keeping track again of what I read in March 2004 and managed to read exactly 80 books in the rest of 2004. Now I'm starting a new list for 2005, which will hopefully be even longer.
I find that reading books nourishes me in a way fanfiction or movies just don't. I'm also a great book collector - I need to own books, have them for myself, to read over and over if I so desire... This has resulted in my room being filled with shelves overflowing with hundreds of books, because I have a hard time throwing books out, even if I don't think that I'll ever read them again.
Anyway, there was a point in this ramble - you can find my continually updated book list here, on my bookish domain. You can also see what books I'm currently reading or planning to read and find some recs I've done over the years, as well as my book-related fanlistings.
And here's an idea I had: Wouldn't it be fun to have a book_mouse section on The Bookshelf? For example, if anyone here would like to have a similar alphabetized reading list, I can easily set you up with the phpSimpleAlpha script I'm using, so all you'd have to do is log in and add your books. And if anyone would be interested in writing book recs and putting them up, I'd also be more than happy to help out with that!
Just pondering... :)
