This is my own fault.
This year I read a total of 42 books (report on the last one forthcoming), and I have nearly 200 unread books on my bookshelves, most of which are fiction, which means that I have over four years' worth of reading material, not including magazines! Therefore, in order to catch up, I hereby declare that I will buy no fiction (for myself) in 2008.* I will also buy no books about writing (for myself) in 2008. The only books I will buy for myself in 2008 will be non-fiction, and only ones I need for research purposes (after using the library first!).
Plus, I'm going to aim for reading at least 50 books, preferably more. I was close this year. I can do this.
Don't taunt me, I beseech you.
