how many books out of the dozens you bought last year have you actually read?

Honestly? Counting the Goodreads challenge of 2011(46) and 2012(22), I have read a total of 68 books all in all, not counting the rereads. For others, this is a disappointing number. But I don’t really care. I am proud of this number since I was able to squeeze this much books in my busy academic schedule in college. :)

And to quote David Quammen:

Of course anyone who truly loves books buys more of them than he or she can hope to read in one fleeting lifetime. A good book, resting unopened in its slot on a shelf, full of majestic potentiality, is the most comforting sort of intellectual wallpaper.””
