"Mr. Midshipman Hornblower" sounds like an interestng book! I like the cover. I'll have to keep it in mind next time I go book-hunting.

Great progress! I tend to think in terms of goals and rewards in my reading too -- it just seems natural to me to do that. It's fun to overcome little obstacles, even ones we set ourselves.

It is interesting how much mood effects reading. Someone was talking about tracking their reading in the sense of how one book spawns interest in another, or maybe how discussion about a book leads to reading it. I'd like to do something like that starting in January. Do some kind of graph to just watch how my reading jumps around and track the influences, etc.


Brandon--I have heard the later books are better than the first (apparently he wrote them at different times, but I want to start at the beginning of Horatio's career), but I did enjoy it. The A&E movies are really very good, too!
Dorothy--I tend to do this a lot. It is always nice to be able to cross something off my list-I feel like I have achieved some small thing.
Carl--I like keeping a list of the books I have finished--it is interesting to see where I started and where I end up. So many books these days seem to have a story behind them--I read something because someone suggested it, or a book was similar to something else I just read...


Ah! Happy to hear you enjoyed the first Hornblower book and that you will be reading more. They get better as they go along. (At least that's what I've found so far, and I only have 2 more to go, I think.)


Courtney--It's nice to see another Horatio fan! I feel like I am probably boring everyone when I keep talking about him! I plan on reading all the books in the series, too. Actually today I was reading other books and I was thinking how much I would like to be reading the next book in the series. Soon enough, though!
