Not ONE book??

How could I have almost gone a WHOLE year without reading one single book? How did it come to this?! How did it get this bad?!?

I happened to check out goodreads.com, since I hadn't been on there in so long. It's a glorious website for booklovers of all kinds. You can keep lists of books you'd like to read, are currently reading, and have read. Every year, they have this "Reading Challenge" in which you pick a number of books you want to have read by the end of the year. For this year, apparently, I picked 50. Thought I was giving myself a break...apparently not because it seems as though I have only finished one book this whole year.

Not to say I hadn't started reading books...I just never finish them. *Sigh*. This is so depressing. Only means I have to work harder for next year *determined face*. I wont give up entirely this year either, though. I have plenty of books to get through, and have purchased a couple interesting ones from Goodwill the other day! I also picked one up from Barnes and Noble on the way home, which is the ONE I've finished...all year.

Fragments of Horror by Junji Ito
Feeling Good by David D. Burns, M.D.
Eat Me by Linda Jaivin
Fragments of horror wasn't as spooky as some of Ito's other works, but it was still a pretty good read. There was a little bit of confusion with the twists and turns that the short stories portrayed, but all in all they were each eerie enough on their own. A couple had me at the edge of my seat. I recommend it if you enjoy reading disturbing psychological manga. I can't wait to start reading the other two! What a mix of literature.

Thanks for reading...while I get to reading.
What's on your to read list?
