2 Years of Reading

Today marks my completion of two years of doing at least one half hour of reading per day. In the past year, I have read 34 more books comprising 15,852 pages. This brings my total for the two years to 61 books comprising 32,085 pages. I have been remiss about putting up reviews of what I've read, and will be trying to get back to that backlog soon. I will say I enjoyed a majority of the books I read, with the notable exceptions of Ulysses and the Sot-Weed Factor.
