A few more book stats:
The last book I read before getting married was the extremely cheery and light-hearted Reading Lolita in Tehran, by Azar Nafisi.
The shortest books I read all year were Terry Pratchett’s children’s book Where’s My Cow and William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, each containing just 24 pages.
The longest book was Miss Manner’s Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior. Clocking in at a hefty 711 pages, this book was extremely enjoyable but had no perceptible influence on my manners.
