Of what I’d consider my personal library, maybe like 75%? Much lower if you are counting the piles of books people have sent me to review, left at my house by accident, old books I had to buy for school and never read, or whatever.
I have read in full 336 / 893 books that I own, apparently.
let us not forget that benjamin essay about how the book lover who has read all the books in his library finds himself in despair or whatever
But I’ve sold a lot of books in the last couples of years.
But, I have read 882 books in the time span my goodreads account covers (basically 2006ish-present), so apparently I just read a lot more books from the library than books I own (which makes sense I guess since I work in a library)
ZZZZZIPPP’S LIBRARY IS CONTAINED ON A DISTANT PLANET AND IT IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO BE PERUSED. THE FICKLE GUARD DOES NOT ALWAYS RECOGNIZE ZZZZZIPPP EVEN WHEN ZZZZIPPPP HAS BROUGHT WITH HIM THE PROPER KEYCARD AND GENETIC IDENTIFICATION SERUMS (TO BE POURED IN THE ESSENCE-LOCATOR). IT CAN BE FRUSTRATING DEALING WITH THIS MAN WHO FOR REASONS OF SECURITY CAN LOCATE AND BAR ENTRY EVEN TO PHOTONS.
BUT EVEN WITH THESE OBSTACLES ZZZZIPP HAS MANAGED TO READ ABOUT 33.33%.
75%, owing to the fact that I am now strict about giving away books I’ve already read & can bear to live without. I have to hang onto references, anything by certain authors, books my father gave me, anything I’m going to want to reread, etc. Everything else goes back into circulation.
