Still reading big piles of books each month as I hit the one-third point of the year, which is a good sign for this Book-A-Day thing.

On the other hand, the supplies of comics/graphic novels/BD/manga that I have are getting increasingly depleted, and I've started counting them to see if there's any chance that they'll last to the end of the year. (At current numbers: no.)

So I may have to shift focus in the back half of the year, or ransack libraries for every last comic they ever acquired. Or maybe revisit some things on my "read" shelf, but I don't want to do that wholesale: it's a cheat.
