Wow, an impressive list, congratulations! I've read very little, if one would count printed books, though quite a lot if you count read pages. *g* As books, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, parts of the Unfinished Talesand about a third of LotR, all in German, and bits and pieces of the History of Middle-earth. But I feel as if I have read half the Ardapedia over and over again, have read even more fanfic than ever before, I think; not counting all the other resources I have read and re-read over and over again. The Year of Tolkien for me. *g*

It looks bigger than it is, so I wouldn't have made any page challenge with those, I think. :D There's a lot of veeery trashy stuff on there- all the tell-alls, the German classist comedy literature, and the comedy books aren't really that big, so.

And as far as I'm concerned, the Silmarillion is three books at least. Though I'm biased, since I never made it past page 20 or so.

I have times when I read books voraciously, and others when I don't and concentrate more on fanfic... my first two years after discovering fanfic were very short on the book-side, and before that, I sometimes read a few very thick books during the year and sometimes devoured the (mostly scandinavian) mystery books three or four a week... but before I started to make notes about my reading, I never counted the re-reads, which have always been frequent. I also never counted the trashy stuff - of that, I might have read about 20 or 30 or so. Ahem. *g*

It's true, if I didn't count the re-reads and trashy books the list would be way shorter. :)
