So, just short of half my target. 2009 will have to be better. So, here’s my first resolution of the year. My friends will understand how difficult this will be for me, but I won’t buy another book until I’ve read 52 books from  my exisiting library.  I have about 200 unread books to choose from, so I shoudn’t want for options… wish me luck in 2009.
