I read a book published in every year between 1970 and 2013. I can now rest on my laurels and, of course, start another book.
Congratulations HIMS. It's always rewarding to fulfill a goal.

Just where are the laurels of a tinman located? Or is that too personal a question?

Moving right along ...

I'm behind again - I'm stuck on Satanic Verses. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up soon

I just finished The Satanic Verses, but I was stuck early on pondering all the references I didn't get and trying to sort out the characters, several with the same names. This helped to the point that I actually began to enjoy the book: http://public.wsu.edu/~brians/anglop...es/svnotes.pdf

Finally updated my list and managed to add 20 books that I read over the summer. I've been reading genre series books almost all year, so props to the rest of you who are reading the more "serious literature". That would take me much longer to plow through, and I'm just not in the mood for that.

So far, I'm ahead in my countdown to 100.

Finished book number 57. I'll be hardpressed to match last year for books or pages at this point, but more than 50 books seems like a giant accomplishment this year.

I've been reading lots but also buying lots, so I've failed in my main objective. It's just possible, if I buy very little from now on, that I might make my secondary objective of reducing my TBR to 240. We shall see.

I chose too many long books and series for my 20 from the SF&F list, so I've had to do some rearranging and pick shorter stand-alone books for the rest of the year. At the 3/4 mark, I'm 2/3 done my secondary goal.

I'm not going to meet my targets for bought/TBR reduced, but I have read a lot of splendid books.

I've read 107 out of my goal of 120, so this should be easily manageable. I'd prefer to get 10-12 books over that goal if I can, since those 107 include about a dozen short stories / novellas.
