Raging Biblioholism – One Year On

I’ve been so busy with work and the show and life that I forgot to celebrate this blog’s one year anniversary!  Thanks to the miracle of back-dating, it’s totally going to look like I posted this on the 1st… but full disclosure, right?

So let’s take a few minutes and look back on the last year, shall we?

Challenges:

This blog was originally created to compete in the 2nd Annual Cannonball Read.  52 books in 52 weeks.  Completed?  You bet – on June 23rd, I finished The Magicians and hit that magic number.  I also polished off Once Upon A Time IV this spring.

Book Clubs:

Didn’t do so hot at keeping up with book clubs this year.  I joined the Tumblr book club, ReadHard! (and met a delightful Miss Shannon Remley through it), but left because I just didn’t really love the choices they were making.  I also tried to start a book club of sorts with someone from school but that fell through – as did most things with that individual.

Vital Stats:

  • Books Read: 90
  • Pages Read: 29,583
  • Average Rating: 3.72
  • Highest Rating: American Gods by Neil Gaiman – 6 out of 5
  • Lowest Rating(s): Netherland by Joseph O’Neill – 1 out of 5

It’s been a great year of biblioholism.  I still spend more money on books than I do on really anything other than food – I think I even outpace my theater spending (and that says something).  I hope you’ve found a few cool things if you’ve been reading – and hey, you never know who might drop in (thanks for dropping by, Mr. Jonathan Howard!  I can’t wait to read the next Johannes Cabal book!  and Ms. Gail Carriger mentioned me because I said I wanted to be best friends based on tea choices.  This is absolutely the truth and I love that she agrees).  So raise a glass to our second year, if you like.  I’ll be here, reading away!
