The books I get -- updated

I made a post recently on how I decide "What to read next" which has generated some discussion elsewhere.

For the record, in today's mail (and via courier service) I received:

9 Advanced galleys
5 Hardbacks
1 Paperback original

This is a larger total than most days, but it gives you an idea of what I'm trying to keep up with.

My immediate sort produced 3 ARCs and 1 hardback that I might read, plus 1 hardback and the paperback, which I've already read. The rest went into the "not likely" pile.

My "waiting to be read" stacks of new titles now consists of 83 books.

Go ahead and put it on my tombstone: "I'm reading as fast as I can."
