Off to a slow start

Last year at this point I had read 11 books. This year--two days later in the month--I have read six. I suppose this year's reading has been a bit meatier. And Blackout and All Clear were 1100 pages combined. But I am still behind. Way behind. And with the state of my life right now, I don't see that improving. I also know that the books on my immediate to-read list are, for the most part, not quick reads.

This year is, I think, going to be more about quality. I may miss the 100 mark for the first time in several years. But if in the process I finally get around to reading some things that have been on my list for years, that will be okay.
