>I could get used to this meme stuff, except for one thing: Now that I’ve learned how to pronounce it properly, my brain doesn’t want to accept the fact that meme rhymes with theme. I see the word and want to pronounce it to rhyme with them.
Enough of that. On with the meme! Meeem. Meeem.
1. On average, how many books do you read in a month? 4-5
2. On average, how many books do you read in a year? Doing the math (ew!), it comes out to about 56.6 books.
3. How many books have you read in the last 5 years? 283
4. How many books have you read in the last 10 years? 454. I thought that number would be higher, but for a couple of years, when I was in graduate school, my totals for the year fell into the 20s.
In other news:
I’m so excited — Mom read a novel! It’s called Outsider by Diana Palmer. She said that she “lived every minute of it” and that the sex scenes were really graphic. She mentioned the sex stuff in two different phone calls, so now I’m slightly curious, though skeptical. Since 1982, I’ve found nothing to even remotely rival that really long and really graphic sex scene in Endless Love. Anyway, Mom’s sending the book to South Korea for me to enjoy. She thinks that it’s probably not my taste, but if she read it, I feel compelled to. My mom, the bookworm? After all these years, maybe it’s finally going to happen! Here we are last summer, bonding at our favorite pizza joint, Calgaro’s, in Cole Camp, Missouri.
One last thing:
Is anyone else having a problem accessing The Superfast Reader’s blog (Reading Is My Superpower)? For the past few days, everytime I visit the page, there’s some annoying pop-up message “stack overflow at line 1487” on the page, then the whole thing freezes up and I have to restart my computer. This has me in a slightly pouty mode, because I can see a bunch of terrific new blog entries on that page, but I can’t get to them. $%!#
