52 Books in 52 Weeks

**Originally written 1/4/09, saved as draft, and forgotten**

Clicking around on Ravelry always gets me into trouble. I either add 2-5 knitting patterns to my project queue or I join a few forum groups. Right before Christmas I found a new group called 52 Books in 52 Weeks. Easy concept, right?

I have been using GoodReads to keep track of my books - what I'm reading, just finished, borrowed, lent out, and the oodles of books that I want to read in the future. I've just broken my to-read list into two - to read and to read someday. I probably need a third list - to read someday but probably never will as these books were all recommended by others and there is not enough time in the day to read them all.2009 Book List
I am starting my count as of December 15, 2008, since when I found out about this 52-books thing I was reading two books I really liked.
