how many?

So, I'm going to take advantage of my bloggerness and promote a website. Sort of. Well, maybe allude to it anyway. I have a habit of writing down all the books I read, and have done this for several years. I didn't have any master list, only book entries scattered throughout handwritten journal entries as well as typed ones. And so, I've been going through them and entering them into librarything (the allusion). I am in love with this site. You can add in comments on each book, reviews, ratings, tags (like: have read, own, want, fantasy, sci-fi, etc) and link to other people's lists and reviews as well. And I have been shocked--to epic proportions. If I add up everything I've read this year back to August 26 of 2005, I have read exactly 150 books. Tomorrow it will be 151. 150 books in one year! That's like...2.9 books per week. I had already suspected I was a semi-loser nerd and had no life, but now I have evidence. I just wanted to establish that fact.

Now excuse me while I get back to my book.

This is a cool site! I'm just bummed it limits you to 200 books before you have to pay ...

Yeah. But, this site is something I've been wanting for a long time, so it's worth it to me.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
