I think accomplished a fair amount of reading in 2009, however I’m sure more committed folks would disagree. However, I read a lot of books that I wanted to read and managed to keep up with Poetry. I fell woefully behind in the New Yorker and even brought several of the issues on vacation with me in a half-hearted attempt to read them cover to cover. However, at this point I’ll probably just throw in the towel and begin again after the first of the year when I return to Indiana.
I’m returning to Indiana with the following books: The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Lit, and Moby Dick. I think the last entry on the list will probably hold me for awhile. I heard a piece about it on NPR and decided that I’d reached a point in my reading life where I probably have the patience and the attention span for it. So I plan to start on it shortly after the first of the year.
