That is how many books I read this year. The only reason I'm keeping count is because I'm participating in the 100,000 eharlequin.com book challenge.
Honestly, I thought it would be more. It feels like I always have a book in my hands. I can't walk past a bookstore--I always have to go in. My public library is closed for renovations and I swear I'm in withdrawal.
I might be unusual in this circumstance (okay, in a lot of circumstances, but we'll focus on this one). When the receptionist at my dentist office read one of my books, she told me that she only reads a book a year. I couldn't get over my shock.
And you should have seen my face when I was on the airplane to Vegas and the woman next me said she hasn't finished reading a book in years. She starts them but never gets to the end. Granted, there have been a few books that I never finished reading because they weren't to my liking, but every single book?
What about you? How many books do you think you read in a year? Post your answer in the comment section before midnight Pacific Time on Monday, December 1, and I'll randomly pick a name to win a $25 USD gift card to Barnes and Noble. I'll draw the winners name on Tuesday. Good luck!
Update: Wow, you guys read a lot of books! I randomly picked a name from those who commented and Pam P (commenter #4) wins the Barnes and Noble gift card. Pam, please email me your mailing address.
