One book down, 395 pages in. Only 17,855 to go…
It seems there’s a challenge floating around in the blogosphere to read 100+ books in 2011. Are these people insane? Do they have any friends? Have they taken a speed reading course? It seems that many of the challenge adopters favour the teenage vampire genre, but still. Makes my project seem a bit piddly in comparison.
My choice of counting pages instead of books is a vote for quality over quantity. I can tackle the big guys without worrying about messing up the count. And I don’t have to read any teenage vampire books to boost my stats. There, now I’m feeling a bit smug.
