2017 was a Good (64%) year with 24 books read including 23 from the 1001 Books list. The exception was Norwegian Wood which I thought was on the list but turned out not to be. This was the lowest annual tally of books completed since Arukiyomi began in late 2006. For the first time, there were two months (January and October) where I finished no books at all. In total, I read approx. 13,000 pages, including one of the 1001 list’s shortest (Silk) and one of its three longest (1001 Nights) which means I’ve read the three longest books on the list (with Dance to the Music of Time and In Search of Lost Time making up the other two). Only one book, The Forsyte Saga, made it to my Hall of Fame. The most balanced book was The Feast of the Goat with a standard deviation of only 0.0709, while the most unbalanced was Ulysses (2.766). The worst book of the year was the very first one I read: Against the Day achieved only 20%.
