It's over a year since I began the concerted effort to read all the books on book mountain. There were 229 books. Now there are 189.
In that time, I've bought loads more books, been given books and picked up one or two from the book drop at work. I've made a net gain of 40 books, but I've probably read at least twice that. And the bookcase that housed most of book mountain collapsed, causing a bookslide. Still, mountains are there to be climbed so I will carry on until I get to the top. Or bottom, depending on how you look at it.
