Barry | 10 comments I couldn't find where I pledged to read 10 books in the last 11 to 13 weeks of last year, but the goal was met with; At All Costs by David Weber, The Legend Of Huma (Dragon Lance) by Richard A. Knaak, Freehold by Michael Z. Williamson, The Philosophical Strangler by Eric Flint, Sliding Scales by Alan Dean Foster, The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon, Running From The Diety by Alan Dean Foster, The Dark Tide by Dennis L. McKiernan, Princess of Wands by John Ringo, Dragon's Kin by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey, and I think there is one more. That is 4092 pages that I can confirm.
Now for this year, my pledge is at least 40 books and a minimum of 20,000 pages.
How many books and pages do you plan on reading this year?

Barry | 10 comments So far I have finished three books and 1073 pages.
Days of Infamy by Harry Turtledove. 520 pages.
The Great Taos Bank Robbery by Tony Hillerman. 178 pages.
Into the Thinking Kingdoms by Alan Dean Foster. 375 pages.
Which puts me on schedule for books, but behind on pages.
I am currently reading, Blue Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson, and End of the beginning by Harry Turtledove.
No credit until the book is finished.
