How many books have you completed this year?
What is your target? Do you think you'll hit it?

So far I'm 12/50, which I think i might increase to at least 75..
>>
I've only read No Country for Old Men and The Edible Woman this year.

I don't know, I feel like if you've read 12 books in 28 days... with literature you get out what you put in, I think.
>>
>>7635455
Keep in mind 3 of those are graphic novels, 1 is poetry and 5 are under 220 pages...

I work a dead quiet office job, and spend 90% of the day reading. What can I say?

8, but I have some long books coming up so we will see.
>>
I've read 4. I hope to get 26 done this year. The Recognitions, V and Lanark are on the list, so they may take some time.
>>
OP, how is the DFW reader?
>>
I like to read one door stopper per month and fill the rest of it with shorter works or novellas . trying to average 3-4 books a month with this method.

Yeah, really good. It's a fairly good mix of his fiction/non fiction.
If you've read most of stuff, like I have, it's probably going to be a lot of what you've read before, but there are one of two essays in there that have never been published elsewhere. Also, his syllabus, which is sort of interesting if you're into that sort of thing.
>>
Roland Barthes - Mythologies
Agatha Christie - The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
Tim O' Brien - The Things They Carried
Wheeler Winston Dixon - Film Noir and the Cinema of Paranoia
New Essays on The Crying of Lot 49
>>
J.Williams - Stoner
V. Nabokov - Despair
M. Houellebecq -Platform
+ 2 Penguin 80p Classics, but I guess they are too short to be considered as proper books.
>>
So far I have read:
Lord of the flies
The picture of dorian gray
The problems of philosophy - Bertrand Russell
A star wars book :P
The Trial - Kafka
Im trying to hit 50 this year and I think it's plausible.
>>
Still reading my daily subchapter of V

Read 10 so far. Don't really have a goal because I don't want to force myself to read more than I want to. Best books I've read so far would probably be: Speedboat by Renata Adler, The Tunnel by William H. Gass & The Moviegoer by Walker Percy
