So my final tally was 20 that I have totally read and 8 that I have partially read. the interesting this is that I could use this as a reading list for me because a majority of them I want to read. No you do not need to tally them up, but since part of why I did this was to ee how many I had read I decided to.

The Silmarillion maybe the most unreadable book ever written

oh fun fun!

I have read 37 and partially read 7 of them. And I would agree, Silmarillion is probably one of the most unreadable books ever, but I feel that way about much of his writing. C.S. Lewis may have been a major Christian apologist, but the man could write!
