Books Read in 2009

Last I counted, I had 438 books in the TBR room...and that was at least a month and several purchases ago (oops, was I supposed to pause in book buying until I'd read more?). And when thinking about how many books I managed to find the time to read, I was worried this list would fall short. But with it all written down (um, it starts in chronological order but it doesn't stay that way), I'm pretty darn impressed with myself. Especially since this doesn't include manuscripts. In 2010, I'm going to count those - queries too :)

My gosh. I though I had a lot to read with my measly 100+ books spread out between my room and the garage. But to have a TBR ROOM? wow. That's a lot of reading. Four year's worth for you! :)

Happy reading (how do you know you don't have double copies?)

Marce said...

What a great list. I'm going to read Hunger Games this year. I am telling myself to stop buying books also and i'm no where close to you :-)

Enjoy reading, hope you have another great year.

Love seeing what you read last year. Of course, I know it's at least twice as long with all the mss and such.

Dave Cullen said...

Suzie, thanks for including my book, Columbine, and bolding it. I appreciate it.

That's quite a list. I don't know how you do it.

Wow! Awesome list! That is a TON of books! :-)

You really do have a great blog here. I have a blog myself which brings inspiration and guidance to people all around the world. Life is hard enough, and I hope my site can contribute anything positive to someone's day.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible. Until then, keep up the good work.

I finished Shiver about a week ago and loved the characters. I heard that Stiefvater is working on a sequel which make me happy and sad all at the same time. I want to know more about Grace and Sam, but sometimes sequels are such a huge disappointment.
