I’m done. Today, I finished the last book on my reading list for grad school (The Likeness by Tana French; more about that soon). Reading eighty books in two years proved to be the toughest part of the program. I’d estimate I read 24.000 pages during my tenure. Don’t get me wrong, I like reading and would have finished most of those books for entertainment. Just not at the same pace.

I heard Juno Diaz say that he reads a book a week and has storage lockers full of them. Don’t think I’ll be challenging that record any time soon.
