On books and reading

I did a quick count of the number of books I read last year (via my hardly updated book blog) and ladies and gentlemen, I read 91 books.
December and June were the best months for reading it seemed. (I suppose December cos that's when the library kicked up borrowing a notch by doubling the quota and June cos... I took leave? I can't remember now)

Fewest reads (only 5 a month) were in July and May.

If I keep on going like this, the 50 book challenge and ed's 75 book challenge will be a breeze.

and via ed's rants, it seems that James Frey of A Million Little Pieces might have conned Oprah and thousands of readers into thinking he's badder than he is.
