  • 7 books in Spanish
  • 14 non-fiction
  • a fuckton of sci-fi and fantasy
  • 19 books read via kindle
Goals for 2011:
I'd like to keep up with reading books in Spanish. I think 9 is a good goal (this year's goal was 6, so goal surpassed). Also, especially with my Arabic CSET coming up, I'd like to read at least a couple books in Arabic. Inspired by io9's Blogging the Hugos series, I want to start reading through novels that have won the Hugo Award because I think that will be an interesting exercise in being well-read in sci-fi.
