A resolution any fool can keep

Resolve to keep a list of all the books you read in a calendar year. keep an email list, and forward it to yourself every time you add a title. Then on January 3rd or 4th, you can look back at what a well-rounded and clever person you are.

My list is pretty much in chronological order, except separated by fiction and non-fiction. I read
58 books twenty of which were unabridged books on tape. Not too bad. all the Lemony Snicket books at 120 pages definitely upped the count, though.
