As far as number-of-books-read-per-year goes, 2009 was a bust. In 2008 I read 24 books. 29 in 2006, and 27 in 2005. I only read nine books last year. Nine? If you know me, that’s unacceptable. I blame Mario Kart, Seasons 1-5 of Saturday Night Live on DVD, and the fact that I doodled more in the past year than all previous years combined.
So it’s not like I wasn’t doing something, I just wasn’t doing a lot of reading. I’ll try to make up for it this year. I’m almost finished with my third book of 2010, but it came with a price: my doodling numbers have plummeted.
