The Reading Librarian

Do you read? For librarians, I believe it is a must. It is sad if you're an excellent cataloger and you could not even squeeze a wee bit time for some pleasurable and leisurely reading. Not to brag, but aside from the required reading in graduate school and the daily newspaper, I have read more books in 2005 than in
. Here is how I fared:

1. Meditations on Middle Earth edited by Karen Haber
2. Almost Married by Tara Ft Sering
3. Zorro by Isabel Allende
4. South of the Border East of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
5. The Borgia Bride by Jeanne Kalogridis
6. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
7. How to be a writer (drat...I forgot the author! Sorry.)
8. Reconnaisance by Tara Ft Sering
9. Siglo: Freedom edited by Dean Francis Alfar
10. Stardust by Neil Gaiman
11. Ink Heart by Cornelia Funke
12. Forever by Judy Blume
13. HP 6 by JK Rowling
14. Eleven Minutes by Paolo Coelho
15. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
16. City of the Beast by Isabel Allende
17. Ngalang Pinoy by Neni SR Cruz
18. Elias and His Trees by Augie Rivera
19. Siglo Passion edited by Dean Alfar
20. Philippine Speculative Fiction Vol. 1 edited by Dean Alfar
21. Ten Poems to Open your Heart by Roger Housden
22. 12 Little Things by Alexander Lacson
23. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susana Clark
24. The Leadership Secrets of Jesus by Mike Murdock
25. Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King

I won't be making a reading list for 2006, but I hope to double the number of books read. Desperaux, Dragon Rider, The Pendragon Chronicles and The Hobbit are still in my waiting list. Cheers to another year of reading pleasure!
