I read 46 individual works, including 20 novels/novellas. There were actually more novels, because one was a trilogy, one was a quadril… quadrol… it was four books, and one is described as a trilogy in four parts, but is in actuality five parts (surreal humor). I also read ten short stories, plus one short story collection, three plays, three poetry collections, four graphic novels, three children’s books, one work of non-fiction, and The Bible. Combined these totaled a little over 15,000 pages
I read 8 novels for my 100 Greatest Novels Quest: Novels #93-100

Shameless self-promotion – Blog Post Classic Lit in Song, part II. You’ll want to read this post – trust me. Ever heard of bands Iron Maiden or Blind Guardian? I tip my hat to them, for their numerous songs based on classic literature.
