11K in 2011 - An update

OF COURSE I haven't stopped reading!  haha.  My infant only sleeps on my chest during the day, and honestly doesn't sleep much at night any more.  I've done quite a bit of reading lately, actually.  Nothing too interesting, though.  So here's just an update instead of a 1 by 1 post.

Your Pregnancy week by week - 6th edition.

Curtis, Glad B and Judith Schuler.  Your Pregnancy week by week.  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Da Capo Press, 2008.

I'm counting this book twice because I read most of it twice, and I've also read lots from other informational books that I'm not counting, so I know that I'm probably low-balling my page estimate this way.

600 pages- read twice = 1200!

Where the Heart Is.

Letts, Billie.  Where the Heart Is.  New York, New York: Warner Books, 1995.

Read on my Kindle!!!!

384 pages according to


(Yes.  I love the series.  I re-read all of them, as is my custom for any movie release.  PS- I loved the movie.  Much much better than the others!)

Meyer, Stephenie.  Twilight.  New York, New York: Hachette Book Group, 2005.

498 pages

New Moon.

Meyer, Stephenie.  New Moon.  New York, New York: Hachette Book Group, 2006.

563 pages.


Meyer, Stephenie.  Eclipse.  New York, New York: Hachette Book Group, 2007.

629 pages.

Breaking Dawn.

Meyer, Stephenie.  Breaking Dawn.  New York, New York: Hachette Book Group, 2008.

754 pages.

I've also read countless Dr Seuss books, Berenstein Bears books, and various other children's stories.  I'm conservatively estimating 250 pages.  This is definitely a low estimate, only because you know how many words are on those pages- not as many as the other books I've read!

Grand total- 1200 + 384 + 498 + 563 + 629 + 754 +250 = 4,278.

Total pages read in 2011: 8,754
Pages remaining: 2,246

Holy WOW!  I think I caught up quite a bit!!!  I still have a lot to read in December, but I think it's manageable at this point.  Earlier in the year I would have sworn I could never catch up.  Looks like I've done a pretty good job!!!

36 more days left.  So if I can read 63 pages a day, I can make my goal!!!
