Reading was done

I can't believe it's already December. Not sure where the other 11 months of the year went. This year has flown!

I was able to get some good reading in during November. And no. The pages I read didn't consist entirely of vampire books. In fact there were NO vampires this month :) I finished 4 books in November for a total of 1,075 pages. That brings the total to 36 books and 12,367 pages for the year. For comparison's sake, at this point in 2009 I was at 33 books and 10,931 pages, so I'm doing better than I was at this point last year. And with two long flights on an airplane included in December, I'm feeling pretty confident I'll hit that 40 book goal I've got.

But I've still got 30 days left to do it. Let's take a look at what I read in November.

The Long Run by Matt Long w/ Charles Butler
A Perfect Match by Shelley Bradley
Must Love Dogs by Claire Cook
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

I totally recommend The Long Run. It's about the NYC firefighter who was severely injured when he was hit by a bus while riding his bike during a transit strike in NYC a couple of years ago. The book looks at his recovery and how he trained for, and ran, the New York City Marathon and later went on to finish an Ironman. Inspiring stuff. The middle two were pure fluff and it's taken me years of hearing rave reviews from friends, but I finally got around to reading The Lovely Bones. Not bad.

Sounds like some good books! I need to get back into reading more! I enjoyed The Lovely Bones, even though it was sad. Wasn't that made into a movie?? I haven't seen that yet.
