the day you left was just my beginning

In an effort to make you feel better, I tallied everything on my to-read list, across iBooks, Kindle app, the to-read pile in a chair, and the bookcases.

Seven on iBooks + 21 on Kindle [tbf, I snap up free Kindle books when possible] + 32 hardcopy. Also I didn't include the four books I've borrowed from Morgan nor the books of the Dark Tower series that I have published (the first four) since those are separate entries on my 101 in 1001 list (part of the impetus for my making the list).

Still, that's sixty-eight books, and one of my goals is to finish them by 01 March 2015 (and you know I'll end up adding other books...).

I know there are more that should be on the list, but they're ones I will finish, maybe, if I shave the current list a little.
