The end of year is also a time of drawing a line and making a balance. I set a few reading goals at the beginning of the year and now is the time to take a look at them. There weren’t many of them achieved but despite of this I am quite pleased with this reading year. I know that I didn’t manage to read as many books as I would have liked but I was close to my average. I finished 48 books in 2009, counting here Brandon Sanderson’s “Warbreaker” too, from which I have only 20 pages left and it will be finished until the end of the year. From the 48 books, 45 were reviewed on my blog and for the other 3, T.A. Moore’s “The Even”, Marian Coman’s “Nopti albe, zile negre” (White nights, black days) and Julio Cortazar’s “Bestiario” (Bestiary), I am not certain if I will write one. It was a very good year since from the 48 books I read with only 4 of them I was dissapointed.
At the beginning of 2009 I had a list of titles I was looking forward to read and from the list of 18 titles I read 8 of them (with 4 titles from that list not published this year). The goal I failed to achieve at any level is the work on my Pile O’Shame. Unfortunately once again I neglected those books and I failed to start reading these series. However I have to seriously consider the series list for the reading goals of 2010, but this time with a strong self push from behind to really start reading them.
As for my blog, I know that in the last couple of months weren’t any posts about fantasy art, but due to some hectic time at work and some interviews that are still waiting for their answers, I didn’t manage to keep them posted. But this will certainly improve and the fantasy art posts will come back next year, in full force I hope. Also I have in plan a few interviews with some wonderful writers and hopefully those will be successfully made. But I’ll post about all my reading and blogging goals for the next year at the beginning of 2010.
