  • All Four Twilight Books
  • A re-read of all 3 LOTR Books
  • 1.25 Books for my Bitch article on Jane Eyre and Rebecca (A quarter of Madwoman in the Attic and Daphne)
  • .75 of Little Dorrit (gonna finish it this weekend!)
  • The Tales of Beedle the Bard
  • The Historian

How many books did you read? Ballpark it!


  1. I'm just reading my fiftieth book (On Chesil Beach) today. This is my first successful year of the 50 books challenge. If only I could get paid to write reviews!

  2. I read 62, two over my goal of 60 for the year! :) I also read all the Twilight books and Cranford.

  3. Damn! I have a high standard to live up to next year thanks to you two ladies.
