Mmmm, unemployment. All the time in the world and no money to spend it on. Well, there's always the printed word to curl up with, right? And boy, is the to-read pile getting scary around here. I'm in the middle of two books, but neither are quick finishes - one is in Spanish and the other is a non-fiction tome. I have a stack of requested books from both Oakland and San Francisco libraries - no renewals. AND I have another stack of books I brought home from Chicago, thanks to early Hanukkah presents and giving some love to old bookshelves.

So on Saturday I challenged myself to a read-a-thon. An average of a book a day til the end of the year! That's 7 books to pad my skimpy booklist this year. So far, well, I'm 0/2. I made some progress but didn't finish anything. Time to put on the coke-bottle reading glasses and get serious. I'll keep you posted.
Hey, anyone care to join me in Reading Out 2010??? 5 reading days left...
Meanwhile, I've been pumping myself up with year end booklists and podcasts. I don't think I've read one book published in 2010! (Uh oh, I smell a bonus challenge!) Tell me, dear readers, what was your favorite book of the year?
