I’ve set a pretty ambitious reading goal this year–52 books–and for the record, I reserve the right to start counting board books in December if it becomes necessary.
Rather than choosing a reading list challenge like I’ve done in previous years, this year I’m going to start by whittling down the unread books I already own.
It turns out that I’ve got dozens of volumes sitting on my shelves. Lonely. Unread, but laden with good intentions. Well, this year the bookshelves are getting a purge–why exactly do I own The Complete Works of E.A. Poe?–and in order to determine what stays and what goes, I’m going to make sure I’ve actually read everything that’s on them.
