The well-known publishing correspondent and self-described "readaholic" chronicles a year spent reading-and the surprises it brought. In early 2002, Sara Nelson-editor, reporter, reviewer, mother, daughter, wife, and compulsive reader-set out to chronicle a year's worth of reading, to explore how the world of books and words intermingled with children, marriage, friends, and the rest of the "real" world. She had a system all set up: fifty-two weeks, fifty-two books . . . and it all fell apart the first week. That's when she discovered that books chose her as much as she chose them, and the rewards and frustrations they brought were nothing she could plan for: "In reading, as in life, even if you know what you're doing, you really kind of don't." From Solzhenitsyn to Laura Zigman, Catherine M. to Captain Underpants, this is the captivating result. It is a personal memoir filled with wit, charm, insight, infectious enthusiasm-and observations on everything from Public Books (the ones we pretend we're reading), lending trauma and the idiosyncrasies of sex scenes ("The mingling of bodies and emotions and fluids is one thing. But reading about it: now that's personal") to revenge books, hype, the stresses of recommendation (What does it mean when someone you like hates the book you love?), the odd reasons we pick up a book in the first place, and how to put it down if we don't like it ("The literary equivalent of a bar mitzvah, the moment at which you look at yourself and announce: Today I am an adult."). Throughout, So Many Books, So Little Time is pure delight-a work at once funny, wise, and rueful: enough to make a passionate reader out of anybody.… (mais)

A book about reading - right up my alley. Nelson plans to read one book per week for a year, reflection on why she chose each book and how they fit into the events of her life. The end result is less diary and more rumination on why we read and how our lives affect our choices. Though there is plenty book talk and lists as well. Nelson is quite funny and introspective; I just loved this one. 1/1/11 ( )

I borrowed this from UH Main Campus via a request. It was not particularly good.

See my note on it in my blog:

A delightful, light and chatty read, with plenty of suggestions of books to read.
From back cover: "A smart, witty, utterly original memoir about how every book becomes a part of us." Augusten Burroughs.
Sara Nelson is an American editor, book reviewer, consultant and columnist. She set aside a year to read a book a week. The chapters are comments, observtions and thoughts for each week. She tells how each book relates to her life.
"Books get to me personally. When things go right, I read. When things go wrong, I read more."
It is conversational, entertaining and full of life. ( )

"I've lived the past year exactly how I wanted to - between the covers of books and in the places in my head that those books have taken me. I've been agitated, excited, enthralled, annoyed, frustrated, and sometimes a little bored. But I've never been lonely." (Original quote).

At the end of the year 2001 Sara Nelson planned to read a book a week during the year 2002 and to write down her opinions and reactions to every book. What came out is a kind of autobiography of her daily life with family and friends and how every chosen book fittet into it. Witty, entertaining and lots of ideas for the readers to-read list. Very interesting are three lists at the end of the book – the first one with the titles she wanted to read, the second one with the titles she really has read and the third with the still unread books she definitely wanted to read in 2003.

This is a really enjoyable book for every book lover and passionate reader, with opinions about books and reading habits which quite often reflect our own habits. Although I still finish every book (mostly because I hope for some better, special twists) but as Sara Neson explains, to spend time with a book one absolutely does not like is wasted lifetime and that is something to think about.

Never a truer word was spoken, there's never enough time! I enjoyed reading about another bookoholic struggling to decide what to read and when. I have so many books sitting on my shelves to read and this book gave me hope! It also gave me lots more titles to add to my TBR pile - talk about adding fuel to the fire. This is for the bibliophile in all of us! ( )
