  • Surprisingly, I’ve never kept track of the books I’ve read in any given year. Maybe I’ll give it a try this year.

  • I have been doing it since 1994. I have no idea why, honestly, but I like reading over the list and remembering. I mean to write reviews, but I never do, because a good review is succinct and ripe with meaning and therefore difficult and time-consuming.
