Accounting

I think I shall adopt [personal profile] starlady's reading challenge for 2017, modified to my own case

Read 120 books not counting rereads
Read 25 physical books owned since 2016 or earlier
Read 30 books by authors of color
Read 20 books in translation
Read 15 books in Japanese

My stats for last year go

117 books finished

5 rereads, but I last read Cue for Treason over 50 years ago and the first three Dalemarks over 30 (IIRC); and one must reread Full Fathom Five after reading Four Roads Cross because only then does it make sense.

39 books owned before 2014: I'd have thought there were more

32 books by 26 writers of colour. The number goes up if you include books whose protagonists are characters of colour (thank you, Mr Cotterill)

20 in translation.

2! in Japanese
