An interesting idea! It seems like something I would do, but I read too many books to keep track of all of them.

Oh, Spork here, by the way. And apparently, we now have a mutual friend.

LOL! Yes, I think the number would hurt my head if I tried to think about that.

A record would definitely be a good thing to have. I can't tell you the many times I try and remember books or author's I've read and couldn't remember. And I also read a ton on my own.

Hm... life after NaNo has been pretty boring. And I seem to have lost my motivation. I stopped writing at 50K, and haven't looked at it since... though I do have a partial outline written for when I actually do pick up my NaNo again. And I really haven't written anything else either, which is kind of depressing.

Culinary school is amazing! The chef is really great, and I'm learning a ton. And the people in the class are pretty neat too, which is a plus.

How's everything by you? Didja babysit anymore famous people?

Do you do Goodreads? I'm loving that as a way to keep track.

i also use goodreads to keep track - though i fell down in december and didn't log all my books read that month (also because i kind of have a compulsion to at a few lines about why i liked or didn't like it, without spoiling anything, which gets complicated!).

but that way i just type in the book name, click it, and put it on my shelves - 2009 being one of them. it's really very useful and i adore it. it has covers! you can put books on multiple shelves! keep track of what you want to read also!

also, bliss is a prequel - but written after rhymes with witches which i don't understand, because things don't make sense and this is HER OWN CANON. i was very frustrated. if you've read both, i would LOVE to discuss, as i am quite irritated by this.

how did chains and wintergirls compare to LHA's other stuff?

i need jellicoe road to come from the library NOW!!!

Hmm. I have this on my to read stack, but given this interchange I think I'll push it further down the stack...

Nice meeting you tonight!

I keep a yearly book log too, but mine rarely tops out at more than 30 books. I'm a bit of a slow reader, usually only finding the time on the subway, over lunch or at bedtime. Takes me about two weeks on average to finish a book.

Have you read The Last Apprentice books? Series by Joseph Delaney; I first encountered it when I was traveling in Europe and desperate for media in the language I understand. I like it but not enough to move with the books. I have the first 3 at least. Interested?

So, just so I don't randomly add you. I want to let you know;
I added you because you like star trek, star wars, and ever after.
And also, we read some of the same books.
And you seem cool.
I hope you don't mind~

I look forward to the day when I can get all the Walking Dead series. An interesting take on zombies in that everyone becomes one when they die.
