Should I hit the cool magic number and take some time off, or do I just keep reading, reading, reading to set an even-more-impossible-to-break record until the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve? I do have a few more end-of-year memes to complete, plus I seem to reading largely to put off trying to wrap my head around Glee, so...
