I’m a bit behind in my reading. I’ve just started on my 150th book for the year and it’s already the end of September. At this rate, I’ll be doing good if I manage to break 200 for the year. I’m about to hit my goodread challenge, but much later in the year than normal.
It’s not something I’m really worried about. I like reading and I read at whatever pace is comfortable. Still, I have some reputation and people may remark. I haven’t read below 200 since 2010, when I read 169. In fact, 2012 is the only year in 4 years where I read less than 300 (249). Around 300 has been the average.
So what is it? Well, there was a several month long moving experience at the early part of the year. I worked extensively on a non-fiction essayish sort of book I hope is being looked on kindly at the moment. Work, as always, has been significantly busy. I don’t know, lots of things. I just didn’t get anywhere near as much reading done so far this year as normal.
I only wish I had a stock of writing to show for where all that time went.
