I'm reading 150 Books

My ipod

Last night I downloaded 11 books from my public library and put them on my ipod. I am just awed at the technology available to us today. Here I am with this little silver thing in my hand that is not much larger than an opened gum wrapper and it contains the contents of 11 whole books. I pictured myself walking out of the library with my bookbag full of the actual books and lugging them home just to let this sink in.

I use Goodreads website to list my books and write reviews. When I am finished, I copy the html to this blog. Rather than record the books when I am finished reading them, I am setting them all to "currently reading" as soon as I download them. When I looked at my list it looked a little like my junior year in college when I was taking 3 literature classes and 2 history classes. We read a book a week for each lit classes and both of the history classes had a ton of outside reading. I have never read so much in my life! Fortunately, I can have as long as I want to read the books, but the list does look intimidating.
