824 Down

824 Down – 676 To Go

2016 is now one for the books. It’s been five years since I challenged myself to read a total 1500 books before I croak.  This blog continues to be dedicated to that humble, yet daunting goal.  In spite of being consumed with finishing my own book, A Certain Cast of Light, I managed to read a total of 12 books in 2016 bringing my grand total of completed books to 824.

That leaves me with 676 to go which means I’m well past the halfway mark, a milestone with quite a ring to it. Nonetheless, there is no way of getting around the fact that I am presently 64 years old.  At my current pace of 15 to 20 books per year I’ll need to live until I’m 98 and retain all my marbles for that entire span to reach my goal of 1500.

It’s not going to be easy to read all those books. But I plan to die trying!
