Reading… Reading… Reading…

I can’t imagine life without books. 
I’ve tried to picture it, but not for very long, since it’s a rather depressing thought.
Think about it, where would we be without books?

This morning I was looking at the number of books 
I’ve read on my kindle since I got it for my birthday in September. 
I’m not sure of the total number, but it’s somewhere around 60.

So that made me wonder how many books I’ve read altogether since September,
Including paperback/hardback books.
I had started writing down a list in November of the books I was reading, so I found that list.
Well, it turns out I only kept the list from November 8th though the 15th, 
And in that time I read Eighteen books. 
Those books weren’t long books though, most of them averaging about 130 pages.
*We were on vacation during that time, so I had more time to read* 
So then I went and looked at my bookshelf 
(Which is an old beam on my bedroom wall, right above my secret door. Remember, I live in a barn 😉
And I counted all the books I could remember reading since September. 
I came up with over a 100 books altogether, and I’m pretty sure I must have missed some.

I read a wide range of books from 
Lucy Doesn’t Wear Pink
A kids book by Nancy Rue with 245 pages, 
to 
Everyone Communicates, Few Connect
A 250 page book by John C. Maxwell
to 
Story Girl 
By L.M Montgomery, who wrote the Anne of Green Gable Books 

I read kids books 
Teen books
Self-Development books
Historical books
True books
Fictional books
Books to help me learn about God
And the list could go on…
So, how many books have you read in the last eight months? 
Do you keep track of them? 
Which ones are your favorites?

I like hearing what books other people are reading, 
so then I can have a bunch of new ideas for myself…
Well, I hope this wasn’t too long of a post. =)

    Well, I haven't been reading as much, because I've been trying frantically to get this book done, but there have been times I've read four books in a day, from ten in the morning to two in the morning. 😀 I have a B&N Nook, but I like paper books way better. However, the Nook is useful, because my mom hates reading books on the computer, so I put my books on the Nook, and she can read them in bed. 🙂 Also, I think it's awesome that you live in a barn. That would be awesome, and my mom actually wrote a book about a family who lives in a remodeled barn.

    I have no clue how many I've read over the past 8 months…it would have to be 100 or so. Sorta, I write what book I'm currently reading in my diary. I love so many! It's way to hard to choose 😛 No it was fine…I cannot imagine not reading. It would be terrible! Some authors I love:
    Bryan Davis,
    Shannon Hale,
    Veronica Roth,
    Ally Carter
    Eion Colfer,
    Rick Riordan,
    Margaret Peterson Haddix,
    Colleen Coble,
    Julie Klassen,
    John Flanagan,
    and…
    Just a ton more 😛

    Wow, sounds like fun. You and your mom both writing? That’s really cool. And reading for so long at a time… Just… Wow! I would like to do that, and might have a few times when sick or something.

    Nice! Thanks for the list. I actually don’t recognize a lot of those authors, so I’m going to have to look them up! Maybe the reason is ‘cause we don’t read a lot of the same genres (at least from what I’ve seen of the reviews you’ve done). =0
