January 30th, 12:40 | Reading Anything: The quest for wordage, one book at a time.

So, because I'm heinously unoriginal, and also because I'm so disorganized I keep starting up new paper lists, and never manage to keep them together, I'm stealing Yuu's idea of a bookpile and will thusly keep listed here books I've managed to read this year. Which probably won't be many. I have a depressing lack of time to read. However. We'll see.

There are, of course, rules. They are...

    Must be started and finished this year.

    Mustn't be for school.

    Must be books I haven't read before.

and that's it. Go!
