I should note, for purposes of posterity, that I stopped counting books read aloud to my son as a separate list, and just incorporated them into the list overall. One would think that would have helped my totals more, but given how long the His Dark Materials series is...


Basically, I figured that since I'm pushing him toward stuff I like anyway, I should just count the books as rereads and be done with it.
