Reading goals for 2009

Well, actually, it should be "goal." I only one so far (on top of my annual one, which is to read 100 books per year - something that has not happened since I became a mother!). My new 2009 reading goal is to post a review for each book I read. I am currently doing this at LibraryThing, GoodReads and to a lesser degree Facebook. Yes, they are all the same review. Please, how much time do you think I have? :^)

Yeah for Atlanta!

Atlanta is one of the country's most literate cities. :^) This year the following study:

rated it 6th overall. But Atlanta did not make the Top 10 for the booksellers category. It ranked 6th in Education Level. It didn't make the Top 10 in the internet resources category. It didn't make the Top 10 in the libraries category. It didn't make the Top 10 in the newspapers category. And it ranked 6.5 in the publications category. I didn't look at all the data closely enough to figure out how Atlanta ended up ranked 6th overall. Last in the overall rankings? El Paso, TX.

And here for some commentary . . .

I agree, it's interesting.
