For the past 8 years, I have kept a list of all the books I have read.

The first list is books that I know I have read, but didn’t track WHEN I read them. This list is not complete. After that is the lists of books I have read according to year (starting in 2007.) I haven’t read as many books per year as I would like, I’ve been a little busy being a mom. :-) Each year is separated by a picture of books.

11 thoughts on “BOOKS

  1. i just keep getting more and more obsessed with you – it’s starting to scare me (although i swear I’m not creepy)

    HUGE book nerd over here, as well

    love, love, LOVE your blog!!

  2. Penny- You should really join goodreads too. I LOVE it. Great way to see what other people are reading and get book ideas too.

    • Penny says:

      Yes, I am definitely going to join. I checked it out the other day after you suggested it.
      OMG. I love it. I am going to spend a lot of time on there. I can tell.
      I THINK I may like it more than LibraryThing. Which makes me feel incredibly unfaithful. :-)

  3. cristin says:

    i feel the same i have to have the book that i read lol :)

  4. Wow – quite a list! I have yet to read a number of these – now I have a good place to start :)

    I agree with fun reads – how can you not get sucked into Twilight?! – yes the pun is intended.

    Although…some of your rules I break…like library books! I do love having my own though – if it’s a “good” read – I want my own copy for sure. I’m reading “The Help” now – it’s good so far.

    • Penny says:

      The past year I have been checking out library books like crazy!!!! Actually most of the books I’ve read this year came from the library. I think it’s time to amend my “rules”. :-)
      I have checked out The Help from the library TWICE and have yet to get it read. I’m going to check it out a third time, and so help me, I will get start it this time. Other books always got in the way. :-)

  5. Ayla says: Is it weird that I looked through your list of books? By the way.. I LOVE KELLEY ARMSTRONG!! She’s one of my favorite authors. Also really enjoyed reading Libba Bray although I wasn’t a fan of her third book..the ending kind of annoyed me and made me want to slap her.

    This is going to be the longest comment ever because I feel like I absolutely need to comment on your facts.

    2. I have to admit that while I adore books, I am one of those awful people that dog ear. I’m just so lazy when it comes to bookmarks! Maybe I’ll test out the bookmark that my sister bought me a few years ago as a Christmas present.
    4. I will also never do the Kindle and when I say never, I really mean it.
    5. I love looking at books too. Stick me in a bookstore and I would be perfectly happy just wandering around staring at them.
    6. When I have my own house I’ll be doing the same thing and my children will just have to deal. Having my own library is actually written on my bucket list.
    10. Same situation for me except the only TV show I watch is Glee.
    11. My mom is one of those people and it drives me crazy. Books must be read in order!

  6. Lisa says:

    Are there really people out there who don’t read books in order?

    • Penny says:

      THERE ARE. I have seen them with my own eyes. And, believe it or not, they even openly admit to reading a series out of order.
      They should be studied under a microscope.
