52 books in 52 weeks?

There’s this thing going around the internets — 52 books in 52 weeks, as in read that many books in that many weeks. Sounds like a noble goal for 2011 and I’ll take part, half-convinced that I won’t be able to accomplish the task but it’ll be loads of fun to try. And it might help me focus a little. I’m usually midway through three different books at once. Like right now. I’m reading True Grit, Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights — I’ve always liked her and because I liked that book so much I borrowed another of her books from the library, Playing With the Grownups.

Plus, I have ALOT of books. I buy them compulsively at thrift stores (see price tags on spines in photo above) and so I have shelves and shelves of unread books. I need to get those babies read and take them to Title Wave for credit so’s I can buy even more books.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I have some reading to do before bedtime.

    Sophie Dahl, huh? I have to say that after watching two episodes of her “Voluptuous Delights”, I can’t decide whether I like her Nigella Lawsonesque spoon-licking and abundant cleavage or not. Do you have any of the Roald Dahl classics on your reading list? The BFG was all the rage in 5th grade.

    Oh I didn’t know there was a tv show. I’m not crazy about Nigella so I think I’ll skip the show. The book is good though. I do have a couple Roald books on my shelves. But for now it’s Ice Fishing on the Alaska Road System. Compelling stuff.

    Great book stack, looks like an interesting selection. I love Rick Moody’s stuff.
