So since it seems everybody but me bailed on the tracking for last year, the contest fell apart miserably. So forget contests.
This is just a thread where you can keep track of your pages and books read this year, for your and our general interest. I find it neat to see what other people are reading, so please, if you want to claim a post in here, don't hesitate to do so.
I like to set myself the goal of reading one more book and one more page than the previous year, but after last year's fairly ridiculous 92 books, and 51,886 pages, I think I've probably plateaued, but it's still handy to keep track just for reference. I'm also setting myself the goal of publishing a review for every 2013 book I read in the upcoming year that hasn't already been claimed/reviewed by someone else.
