50 book challenge for 2008

About ~1/3 of the way through the year, I set a goal to read 50 books in 2008. I fell about 10 books short of that goal (not counting the numerous children/picture books I read with my kids), but I still did pretty good. I'm setting the same goal for 2009 and I'm sure I'll make it this year.
