Bookrace 2014

If you follow my twitter, @sosayethallie, or Emphemerallie over there on the sidebar, you’ll see the occasional tag #bookrace2014. It’s pretty much what it says on the tin. A couple of people (and you’re welcome to join us!) are “competing” in a friendly reading Olympics. Scare quotes there, because, seriously, who can possibly lose if they’re reading? More to the point, how can anyone lose if more people are reading more books?

So, we decided to share what we were reading on Twitter and keep a count, just for fun, and occasional omgyouhavetoreadthises. Hush, that’s totallie a word. 😉 Since I just started Anecdotallie, I’ll skip the mass flood of posts on what I’ve read already, but here’s the list so far:
