"The First Circle" written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. 674 pages.
The ninety-eighth book of the year. 32,410 pages at an average of average of 331 pages per book. This is new record for books read in a year. The previous was 97 in 2008. Ironically the average number of pages per book that year was also 331. It is not the most pages per year. That was just over 34,000 last year when I read 95 books.
