  1. *L* If I were to make a list it would be “all the books I checked out from the library or bought and skimmed through but didn’t actually read this year. . .”

    I finished very few.

  2. I simply must start reading classic literature.

  3. … but I see you’ve already read Jayber Crow. I bought Three Short Novels… which contains Nathan Coulter, Remembering, and A World Lost, three of his earlier ones. I’m looking forward to reading the rest.
