My lifetime Books I Have Read list is up to 994. Which is somewhat below the true total, I should think, since I only began keeping this list a few years ago and I only added books that I was certain that I had read. So there’s probably a fair number from my childhood that have been left off. But, be that as it may, I am fast closing in on the 1,000th book. I’m rather excited about it, truth be told.
