This week I celebrated a momentous feat - I have now loaded up the past 20 years' worth of reading onto my LibraryThing account. So I now have not only every book I own up there, but everything I have read since my third year at high school! I feel ever so slightly smug at this accomplishment :-). Next step: get through the backlog! I am determined to finish off the books that I bought in the 1990s and still haven't read by the end of this year, at the very least.

I totally endorse you feeling smug about that. Not only have you meticulous records from that time, you also all transferred them into LibraryThing - and will probably import them into GoodReads as well. Making you the top reader of all New Zealanders, I am sure.

Oh, I bet there are plenty of Kiwis out there whose reading outstrips mine! But it's such a nice feeling to have it all up there :-)

But they don't chart their reading as meticulously as you do ^^ - you ought to get props for that.

Maybe I deserve a medal for it! Or a really awesome hat (reading too much Girl Genius at the moment ;-).

Whoa nice!!!! And an incredibly impressive list at that!!! Ugh I wish I could read books as fast!

Thanks! I have to say, though, that having read so much manga almost feels like "cheating" - I can read 6-10 manga in the time it takes to read one novel, so the numbers feel a bit "inflated" ;-). Plus I know people who plough through tons of books every week and I seem to have lost the ability to do that (curse you, internet!). Makes me feel a bit envious myself :-).
