Fifty-seven. Life seems to short to read stuff that doesn't immediately grab me these days*. If you'd like a go, cut and paste, follow the instructions and link back to here in comments so that we can all come and look.



* Currently reading Iain M Banks 'Matter', which is brilliant.

  1. I scored 33 I think. I don't read as much as I like to these days, because of my meds, but used to be able to read an average-sized book in a day *sigh*. I'm pleased that Son 1 is following in my footsteps and reads a lot.

  3. 35 and I can't see me adding much to that on this list, maybe 'On the Road' and 'Life of Pi'.

    I'm with Annie and hoping we've got 2 readers.
