I have completed Saul Bellow's novella The Actual which brings this year in at 70 books.
21 written by women and 49 by men
60 written in English and 10 in other languages
A scant 4 were non-fiction and the rest fiction
My thoughts on The Actual will follow tomorrow, right now I've got to get the food ready for our guests! Happy New Year. I hope you ring (or have rung) it in with gusto.
