2009 Group Totals

It's well into the New Year so I thought I'd take the time and initiative for an update to let you know of our 2009 Group Totals. Slowly but surely, I'm working on figuring out how to update this blog. In the meantime, I want to let you all know that we had another fabulous year here at 5-squared. Drum roll if you please....because as we have read & book reviewed this year between the 13 of us, we have reviewed 401 books collectively.
I happen to know, as you might, that this number is likely to be much higher individually. I, for one, didn't get all of my reviews up and many more reviews from our beloved authors have been posted onto new blogs which is super exciting as well to see people succeeding and moving on to bigger & better endeavors like our founder, Amanda, has done over at her blog The Zen Leaf. I feel all of this proves the overall growth of this group, more than was ever projected at the sheer start of it all, which is simply amazing!


2009 Book Counts:
Amber - 27
Byron - 3

Christina - 56
Jason - 76
Julie - 32
Lula - 56
Marcia - 8
Nikki - 17
Terry - 53
Trixie - 11

I'm looking forward to our book reviewing in 2010. I'm happy to be here and be a part of this! I'm glad to associate with the wonderful people here as well. I plan on staying around but I understand that as in so many groups people may come and go. No worries. Wherever you go or wherever you are, let's get it on and keep reading!

Wow that's a lot of books! Imagine how much it would have been had we all stayed part of the group! We'd have been overflowing!

Julie I just noticed that both Jen's and Jason's are linked to Jen's book list...

Julie said...

I guess I really messed that one up. I'm still learning. Sorry.
