Number of books to read for 2010

I was just doing a little inventory of how many books I managed to read since completing seminary in November 2008. From then until the end of 2009, my count of theological books read is 25. This was more than I had thought so I have to be happy with that.

My goal for this year of 2010 is to aim for 20 books. If I can manage 20, I’ll be happy, considering family and work is keeping me quite busy. How many books to you get to read in a year? What is your goal for 2010?

  1. Qohelet, reading all the books of the bible in a year is admirable. Yes, got to get rid of that TV myself.

    Tim, yes, that was my letter to the editor. I have to pick up the most recent edition to check it out. Thanks for letting me know.


  2. I always have great expectations for reading a particular number of books during a given year. Its funny how when you look back at a particular year, how many books you actually did read. To be honest, I am always surprised.

    BTW: Did I see a letter to the editor by you in the most recent edition of “First Things”?


  3. I’ve started the year with reading the main theological book (the Bible, of course) with the help of a reading plan. Otherwise I’ll just cheat and read the last page (He Lives!). Hehehe.

    Seriously, I don’t know how many books I plan to read this year, until I finish the Bible, all 84 books in the ecumenical edition. I’m hoping for twenty books for 2010 myself since I usually manage 25-30 in a typical year. Not having cable nor having a TV in the bedroom helps my reading. But I wouldn’t hate myself if I can finish just 15. Anything lower would be shameful.
