I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I'm currently working my way through a long list of classic science fiction and fantasy literature, as listed by NPR a couple of years ago. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists)
A quick calculation this morning indicates that I have read 123 out of 600 titles.
I've been trying to read them in date order, by date of publication. Although I have jumped around a little bit, that's mostly what I've done.
I've been mired in the books of the 1970s for a while now and am finally seeing light at the end of that tunnel--I should be able to start in the decade of the 80s early next year if all goes according to plan.
