Remember when I said "(I received a Kindle for the holidays, as I bought the $10 Song Of Ice And Fire special that Amazon had a month or 2 ago. That might either really speed me up or slow me down… Ok, it'll certainly lower my velocity in terms of completed books for a while... but compared to last year? Will I even notice?)"
Yeah. That, and many other things, dropped my total through the floor.

Also, my record keeping got worse. I don't believe this is complete, but I don't know what's missing... mostly comics, most likely.

The list this year is shorter than last year by a couple, but almost the same.

Somerville, MA
Boston, MA
New Lebanon, NY
Troy, NH
Fairlee, VT
Foxboro, MA
Lake Buena Vista, FL
Danbury, CT

I'm kind of dissatisfied with the rut, but the 1st 6 are going to happen again this year, the 7th won't (probably), the 8th might vary back to Brewster NY, or someplace nearby, but be effectively the same. The work trip in late Jan will add at least 3 and probably 4 cities...

I don't feel like I have significant wanderlust, except that it seems I do... {sigh}

Last year was 63, plus uncounted graphic novels.
This year seems to be 47, INCLUDING all the graphic novels. I don't know what changed. My T commute is still the same 40-60m a day it was. Weird. So, since I've been tracking this now, you can have all of it.

(I received a Kindle for the holidays, as I bought the $10 Song Of Ice And Fire special that Amazon had a month or 2 ago. That might either really speed me up or slow me down… Ok, it'll certainly lower my velocity in terms of completed books for a while... but compared to last year? Will I even notice?)

Quebec, QC
San Francisco, CA
New Brunswick, NJ
Falls Church, VA

Wow. This is a short list. It goes much farther afield than last year, but not that often. I mean sure, that's 11 trips out of town, 3 of which were more than a weekend, which really shouldn't be much to sneeze at, but it seems like not nearly enough. There should be more travel.

This is subject to updating as I am corrected and reminded about things.

= = = = =
I don't believe this to be complete.

Having a T commute has meant I've gotten a LOT more reading done.

I just need to get myself able to read work-and-life-improvement non-fiction.

I count 63 in that list... Wow. I don't feel like I'm reading 1.2 books/week.
jbsegal: (Default)
In no particular order:
Somerville, MA
Boston, MA
Danbury, CT
New Milford, CT
New York City, NY
Rye Brook, NY
New Lebanon, NY
Troy, NH
Fairlee, VT
Foxboro, MA
Arlington, VT
Brattleboro, VT
East Madison, NH
Uncasville, CT

- which means that, for perhaps the 1st time in YEARS, I didn't leave New England by more than about 30 miles, though I did go a number of places in NE that I'd never been before.
