That's 83... but I don't honestly believe the Agatha Christie's should ALL count-- many were short stories, but since I keep track for the I Dig Reading Challenge I assume it's okay to over-count.  

AND I'm still working... because I need to finish up several books I've started and there are also 2012 debuts I promised to read but haven't gotten to yet.
