I’ve reached 100 books over on my list there to the left. I’m most pleased that 54 of those books are books that I had not read before. This may not be a representative year, but I didn’t expect that high of a percentage of new books. The 100th book is a Perry Mason mystery by Erle Stanley Gardner. I had never read any of those books, but Gardner is almost always mentioned when the topic of mystery writers comes up and I have always enjoyed the television show. The books are good, so far, without being great (though which way the rest are is anyone’s guess, since he wrote something like 150 books and I’ve only read two) though they are rather unlike the television show.
