52 books in 52 weeks

Okay, this isn't an art update, but I'm going to try to use this blog to keep track of what I'm reading for the 52 Books in 52 Weeks group on Ravelry. Basically, the goal is to read a book a week, or at least average a book a week, in 2009. I'm pretty sure I can do this, and I'm also pretty sure I can finish more than 52 books (I read pretty quickly) but lately I've been concentrating more on art and networking than reading, so maybe not too many more than 52. Who knows?

I'm going to edit this entry as I add more to my "finished" and "to read" sections (that way I won't end up clogging my blog with book updates), and I also have a little thing on the side of my blog now showing what I'm reading, just finished, and about to start. :)
