The goal is, roughly, 3 books a month for the next 33 months. Here, I'll record 2009's reading list and, because I'm curious, my page count.

3998 pages (Av: 133.3/day) )

2247 pages (Av. 80.25/day) )

730 pages (Av 23.7/day) )

1803 pages (Av 60.1/day) )


23. Dracula, by Bram Stoker. Finished 5/8. (366)
Borrowed this from Tod to read on the flight home. Very, very solid character writing.
24. Mary's Voyage, by Mary Caldwell. Finished 5/11. (259)
Mixed feelings about this one. She portrays the ocean crossing as violent and stormy, but she also seems to have been seasick the entire time. For six years. Unreliable reminiscences.
25. Nautical Emergencies, by Tony Meisel. Finished 5/17. (142)
Good little handbook of very important details. How to deal with a dismasting in particular.

Total to date: 9555 pages (Av: 69.7/day)

So much more work than the trite little list I've always made for New Years Resolutions, but I have a feeling this is going to be more than worth it.

This is going to be a challenge, to get all of these done by September 30th, 2011. I look forward to crossing them off, one by one.

So here goes. )

In other news! Today we went sailing. I did most everything myself, and I kept thinking 'It has to be harder than this, right?'  Yeah, it's not. It's awesome.

So, today's a pretty good day.

Actually, it's a really fantastic day.

The Washington State Ferries called. Dependent on me passing the physical exam (next Wednesday, 11:15am), I start training as a deckhand on June 17th, at 8:00am.

And I'm finding tops for my car on eBay for almost a grand less than new.

I have a job.

Oh, I am a fool. A fortunate fool, but a fool. Decided at some point last week that I really needed to go cruising right now.

In January. )

Lots of pictures under here. :)
