December Total = 8
Year-to-Date Total = 105

Let’s see. I think Code Name Verity is my pick of the month.

Book Club

The Highland Book Club did not meet this month. Next up is Missing Susan, by Sharyn McCrumb.

The Third Thursday Book Club read Unwind, by Neal Shusterman in December. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. There were too many things that kept pulling me out of the story. We also had a book exchange as part of our fun holiday meeting. In January, we’re reading one of my favorite books, The History of Love, by Nicole Krauss.

Challenges

I read one Newbery Honor book this month: Hope was Here.

The Pulitzer Project – 11/85
The Printz Project – 8/13 (+7 Honor books)
The Newbery Project – 25/91 (+12 honor books)

December Highlights

That’s it. That’s what happened in December. Thanks to everyone who stopped by my blog this month!

    Wow what a year of reading you had! Totally blew away your goal – do you think it was because of the audio books? I am surprised I didn’t add more page count but only because I read so many chunksters this year. Apparently I read a lot of very short books, too.
    Off to go see the Tournament of Books list…

      Thanks, Care. It was definitely due in part to audio books. My best reading year before this was 85 books with no audio books. And this year I hit 105 books with 19 audio books. Coincidence? I think not. :)
