yes, I'm a giant girl
Last year I was going to keep track of all the books I read, to see how I did, mainly. And then I didn't do it because I'm lazy. So let's see if I can remember to keep up with it this year. I only read four real books last month, plus two manga.

A Vintage Affair by Isabel Wolff
Matched by Ally Condie
Just Like Me, Only Better by Carol Snow
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Stepping on Roses (Hadashi de Bara wo Fume) v4
Dengeki Daisy v3


Yeah, it's not much, so I'll try to do better.

I looooove Dengeki Daisy. I was reading it online but they've taken it down on most of the sites. Guess I'll have to buy it now, doh! Lol.

I used to keep track of all the books I read in another livejournal account but then I got too lazy to update. Maybe I'll start doing that again since I haven't been reading as much. Hmm. Also, there is a livejournal group called 50BookChallenge that I tried one year but then gave up on. I used to read more than 50 books in a year but now I'm into reading on the net and watching dramas. I really should get back into reading more, I kind of miss it.

I'm sure I read at least 50 last year (D and I go to Starbucks at least once a week just to get out of the house and read), so maybe I'll make 100 my goal for this year.

Dengeki Daisy is adorable. D loves it too. I don't know if there are many 41 year old guys out there who unabashedly love shoujo manga, but I'm sure glad I found one.

You are so lucky. J is not interested in manga or dramas at all. And although he enjoys books he has a hard time reading them because of his ADD so he usually gets audio books. It's hard sometimes because I get so excited about things and then I don't have anyone to fangirl with.

Of course, his passion is D&D and other roleplaying games, which I have little interest in, so I guess it works both ways.

Still, you are very lucky. Wish J would be interested in some of the things I do instead of just calling it 'cute'. Hah.

The best part is that D's to blame for getting me into manga/anime in the first place, so technically, all my obsessions are his fault.

But I don't think he'll ever get me into Everquest or any of that stuff. He can have it.
