Allowing for the usual bunch of things I forgot to log I appear to have read 125 book-like things in the past year. Electric things are up again as I finally cracked and started getting ebooks from Amazon. Still prefer an actual book where possible, but the 99p offers tend to attract. Last year I managed 138 books containing something like 50,000 pages, this years 125 only held around 40K.

Half a dozen overlaps with Mr Escargot, plus a couple more in common still languishing in my TBR stack.

After reviving my Goodreads account at Gedvondurs suggestion I set a goal of 150 for the year, at midnight last night the count was 138 containing 52,776 pages. On top of this are a number of shorter works from the Hugo voters pack (Which also meant I read the first third of Neptune's Brood and Parasite twice) plus the usual magazines.
