For the first time in many years I tried to keep track of the book I read throughout the year. For 2014, it's an amazing 353! Almost a book a day. How the hell did I manage to do that?
My criteria was books. So graphic novels and art books all count, as do novellas released as a single volume, but multi-novel omnibuses counted as only one book. If I had read only one novel from an omnibus (I didn't this year), that would also count as one book. I didn't count any of the books I started and, for one reason or another, did not finish.
Also please understand that I am a computer klutz. I kept my list on a Word file and may well have accidently deleted some books, but I don't think I did. At least, when I reviewed the list there were no glaring omissions that came to mind.
So, 353. That's a ridiculously large number. I doubt I'll even come close to that in 2015, but it's something to aim for.
