I do hope to change this somewhat in the next few weeks. I purchased a new 9.7" iPad Pro today and it is much faster and more powerful than my ancient laptop, so I should be more inclined to type now that I don't have to worry so much about the screen freezing up (helps that I have paired a wireless Apple keyboard to it so I can type at my regular speed). I do have a small backlog of 2016 reads to blog about, including posting the list of 46 books that I read last year. I'll do that sometime tomorrow ow, as I am about to go to bed.
But before I do go to sleep, I just wanted to post a few reading goals that I have for 2017. The first is that I hope to read at least 50 books this year, after failing to do so the past two years (my trained Serbian reading squirrels have enjoyed a long and well-deserved vacation after a decade of reading hundreds of books a year). The second is to read and review at least a dozen Library of America editions (I own nearly 180 volumes and many haven't yet been read). A third is to review at least twelve times this year, even if very few people these days visit my blog compared to its 2007-2012 heyday. I think these are achievable goals and hopefully when the year ends, there will be more output here than was the case in 2015 or 2016.
