I didn’t get many books read in 2015.
Most of them were also fairly short.
Even that didn’t matter much because when I tried to read on my bed, I’d be asleep within ten minutes.
By the end of September I decided to take it easy for the rest of the year and mostly just read biographical articles about famous British and American librarians, book collectors, book dealers, and bibliographers, photo-copied from different volumes of the “Dictionary of Literary Biography.”
Some books that I started reading in 2015 are still in progress.
