According to my most current information, I have read 465 books since summer 2000. These are completed books, not the amount of books that I've started. I used to make myself work through the most putrid of books, just to say I finished it, but my time is too precious. I'm learning that it is about quality, not quantity. The list has become a sort of overview of my life. It has books from college, books for entertainment, fiction, non-fiction, book club... My life in books.
The moral of this story is to always back everything up! Not just photos, everything. You won't realize what you have lost until it is gone. Oh yes, and Mom, you owe me a few Beanie Babies.
