Markd9528 Makes a Mockery of the 'To-Be-Read' List

This could be called my 'Why Do I Bother' list. It is an amalgamation of all the TBR lists I have published over the past 2 years. Marvel at the fact that I have read only a quarter of these books, whereas I have read a third of the works on my recent challenge at the link, which is an amalgamation of 9 of my NON-TBR lists. My lame excuse is that many of the esoteric books I have added are hard to find in local libraries, even in my daughter's University library.
We are left with that eternal question - can anyone beat Mreynolds2373 and/or Tommood on this challenge?
