Catching up on reading

Right now, the collection of books around my house contains the following sub-groups:

  1. Fiction in progress (some abandoned for months or years): 8 books
  2. Fiction not yet started: 11 books
  3. Non-fiction in progress: 12 books
  4. Non-fiction not yet started: 13 books

My current reading project is to finish all the non-fiction and all the interesting fiction I have already started (I don’t much like fiction these days). Then, I will read the remaining non-fiction, before I go out and acquire any more.

Given that most of these books are 300-400 pages, a rough estimate of how much reading I must do to clear the backlog is 15,400 pages. For the sake of comparison, I have reviewed 89 books since I began doing so in a systematic way.
