I am *still* reading Emerson's Essays. (It isn't November 1 yet, but there's no way I'm finishing this book [or any of the other overly-intellectual books left in Mt. TBR] by midnight.)

more culling this month, plus marathon reading of a series

So....1300 even. I find I'm exercising more restraint with the Kindle buys - no more maybe books being accumulated, even if they are free (and if they're free, it's usually for a good reason.)

Ain't that the truth!!!
The only Kindle freebies I download these days are by authors I already know and trust, e.g. the historian Alison Weir just made available a short story associated with her Anne Boleyn novel, which also contains promotional material for the series, including the first chapter of the third which is due for publication next March.
I've been preached at far too often to fall for any more evangelical tracts posing as novels . . . . :-)

It may have taken 5/6 of the year, but the numbers are heading in the right direction finally, and actually continuing that trajectory!
