I finally remembered to post here for my 75, which I hit today! I'm well ahead of last year, when it was July when I hit 75!

Remembered this thread only when it popped up again - I'm cruising over a hundred at the start of Autumn.

That reminds me -> Knausgaard's latest release, Autumn, is not real stellar.

Finished number 75 last night!

Marvel Year by Year, a history of comic book storytelling from the 1930s to today. Filled with nostalgia and beautiful artwork.

Congratulations back to you for Number 75.

Your book sounds a lot more inviting than my 100 one! The Pope's Last Crusade

Congratulations everyone.

I forgot to post when I reached 75 (back in August!) but I have recently passed the 100 books with Helliconia Winter. That was a re-read of the trilogy to mark the recent death of Aldiss.

I just hit 75 books read!

I joined LT a little over 5 years ago and this is the first time I've come anywhere near 75, let alone actually hitting the target.

Just discovered this; looks like I'm going to hit 101 books by Dec. 31. Was going to stop at 100 before starting a new read on the 1st but I came across The Wind and the Willows and remembered the Christmas celebration chapter and felt nostalgic (especially with our white Christmas--the first in years).

At the 11th hour I did read #75, having spent December galloping through very short books. I stopped with a couple of good ones, though: 74: Allegra Maud Goldman, which every human should read, and 75: Moonraker, a curious combination of human rights for women and people of color and adventure and romance.
