The next stats are for my shelves in general. Right now I have 1,289 on my "read" shelf and of those 1,201 are m/m or m/m/m. The hyperventilating is getting worse, considering I only discovered this genre in 2008.
And which of the lucky authors am I supporting single-handedly and putting their kids through college? My top 20 authors of all time that I've read are:
Of the bottom 10 they are only a few books out of 10th spot, and Sherrilyn Kenyon is the only het author that made my list. That was the summer I went on a total PNR binge, just before I dumped the girls for m/m. :-)
We'll have to see if I make it to 500 books. Not likely with a couple of weeks vacation upon me. :-) I'm thinking closer to 425 by the end of the year, but I guess we'll see how many shorts I read. I should probably go by page number to account for all the shorts I read, and go with 30,000 pages. A nice round number. :-)
Yes, we are melting here. It made to 47C (115F) with the heat index yesterday. Although my house is relatively cool. I'm trying not to put on any lights that give off heat or turn on the stove, so it's bearable and with a/c in my bedroom I'm okay. Today is supposed to be better. Still hot but as I left work yesterday to walk to my car I said to a colleague "I now know what a baked potato feels like when you toss it in the oven". Stay cool everyone as I know there are places in the US that are even hotter than us and it at dangerous heat levels.
