Dated photo. I'm too lazy to take a photo of my current very packed shelves.

I have no excuse for not updating this blog. I will try to catch up on all the posts I should have written.

In 2009, I managed to read a total of 59 books out of the expected 100. In retrospect, this is due to the limited amount of books read during the first half of the year (around 10 books).

Of the 59 books, 14 are graphic novels, 6 are young adult fictions, and 5 are non-fiction.

Jim Butcher won the award for most books by a single author with 10 books (Dresden Files series), followed closely by Murakami Haruki with 9 books.

Despite failing to read 100 books in 2009, I decided to try again this year, broken down to the following categories:

10 nonfiction
5 Chinese (or other non-english books)
85 fiction (inclusive of graphic novels)

Hopefully, it can be done this year, especially since I still have around 50 unread books on my shelves.
