And although I haven't read Berg, I have read Three by Ann Quinn, and it's excellent.

Lists = stats = nerdy.
Last year I read 57 books, a lot for me.

I have calculated that the average number of years between the date of publication and 2015 for the books I read was 47.87.
Hi: 408 (estimated): Anthony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare.
Lo: 0: Satin Island, Tom McCarthy.
Can anyone beat my sadness quotient?

But how can anyone choose Wise Blood over the stories?

Yes, another prescriptive pile-up of titles, this time intended to complement that bloke-ish list of last year [in Esquire] [...]
“The Sixty Best Books by Women Every Man Should Read (But Could Always Ignore and Stick to Philip Roth)”
(of which I've read over a dozen of the titles, a score of the authors)
My score sadly only 5 and 13.
