Four for Four, being bad

Well, I've started my new booklist for 2010 and as of yesterday, I was four for four--that is, in four days, I'd read four books. Of course, two of them I'd started last year, and of course, I spent well over eight hours riding in the car back from NY. It was a harrowing trip, so I couldn't concentrate well all the time, but I still got a LOT of reading done.

I won't be reading a book a day as a regular thing, though! I have too much else to do. AND I am reading a long book.

Booklist 2010

Book's I've finished in 2010 so far:

  1. The Blue Roan Child, Jamieson Findlay, Jan 2, 2010
  2. The Indian in the Cupboard, Lynn Reid Banks, Jan 2, 2010
  3. Summer on Blossom Street, Debbie Macomber, January 3, 2010
  4. Angel Rock, Darren Williams, January 4, 2010

I am currently reading:

  1. A Passage to India, Forster
  2. The Lacuna, Kingsolver

and a whole bunch of other books including two how-to writing books and some self help type diet and health books and two other Kingsolver books etc etc.

I am also too busy right now to write any reviews of these books. Suffice it to say that I liked all four of them (and the two mentioned above that I am currently reading.)

(I am "bad" because I have been spending too much time reading when I have other things I need to attend to!)

This is truly inspiring. Barbara Kingsolver will be presenting writers' workshops at the San Miguel Writers Conference in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico February 19-23 2010. I just signed up. It looks like a rare opportunity to meet her. Are you going?
