Because of the demands of life, I have only finished one book this year so far.

How many books have you read thus far?

4 so far, started my fifth today. I would have started it much earlier, but I worked for almost two weeks straight and had my free time plummet to around zero.

4, I'm in my 5th which is quite big, then I'll catch up with shorter boks to meet y quota. No force feeding though, gotta keep it fun or I'll be unable to sustain the habit now that I'm wagecuck.

Also I finished Charterhouse of Parma at something like 10.30 pm the 31st of December, was a pretty nice way to wrap up the years.

0, but I'll change that to 1 by the end of the week. I've really let myself go in the last month or so due to depression hitting me hard and me not doing anything about it, but it all ends now.

7. I've been trying to read a book a week.

>1. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
>2. Industrial Society and It’s Consequences by Ted Kaczynski
>3. Junky by William Burroughs
>4. The Present Age: On the Death of the >Rebellion by Soren Kierkegaard
>5. Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill
>6. The Book of Monelle by Marcel Schwob
>7. Teatro Grottesco by Thomas Ligotti

My ranking of each from best to worst:

Might finish Naked Lunch or Inferno next week. I'll probably just cop out and finish the last 50 pages of the crying of lot 49. I've been starting out with light books to get into the rhythm of it.
