I'm slightly in awe. That's impressive.
12 books in 2 months? Hardly... some people on my flist are much more prolific. XD
You make me feel like such a horrible wannabe-literary-type.

Anyway, I've started up an Excel sheet, and no way is it nearly as long as this.
Meh, it's 1/3 of the way through summer already and I'm not even at 50 books. I need to read more... you should see how much Tian reads in a week.
Ohh, the horror. And how much -does- Tian read in a week? I think I topped out at one a day in China, but beyond that I get really distracted.


More than Lisa only because I don't have to take notes and I don't treat reading like Lisa does. :P And it's mostly crap. ;__;

Lisa is to reading as Tian is to commissions.
That's definitely an analogy for the SATs. And if I could get paid for reading (with real or imaginary currencies, mind), I'd read more and take notes less, not the other way around...
Except, the only way people get paid for reading is by writing and publishing reviews. Which means taking more notes, therefore less reading. XD
Shush, you. The whim of my logic follows no such "guidelines".
