Last night, I completed my 400th book since January 1, 1996, finishing off The Hard SF Renaissance. I’ll have a summary of this later on (and on goodreads). Shortly before going to bed, I started up on book #401, Gardner Dozois’ The Best of the Best: 20 Years of the Year’s Best Science Fiction.
400 books in 14 years seems like a lot, but it averages a mere 28 books per year, which is just over half of what I was aiming for when I started this out, way back when. Still, I should be very satisfied. There are people out there who probably don’t read 400 books in a lifetime.
