Would you believe I came so close to doing this, but because I was so dedicated to hitting the target I just didn't have time to write about it...True!! I did get 3 books finished and 49 partway finished. In addition to this I read lonely planet guides to the Philippines, Turkey, and India. I also read 3 cookbooks, and a design book about sheds. Aside from books I have read 43 blogs regularly, so I believe folks, by my calculation this exceeds the original target. Success!
