34 books - a new record where I'm closer to 50 than ever before!
It helps having settled down into marriage, and not having kids (yet?). I have also discovered that our local and mostly francophone thrift shop has a pretty good English book section, and I have found a few more while perusing new and used book shops in Berkeley, San Francisco, Toronto, Amsterdam, Seattle and Vancouver. I now have a shitload of books on my on deck shelf to get through for 2011, like at least 20-25!
I don't know if I'll surpass 34 this year, but I already have three down for 2011.
Looking forward to reading more and more and seeing a few long dormant 50-bookers coming out of hibernation!
