December total: 1,690 pages
2012 YTD total: 20,605 pages

Only 2/3 as many books read this year as last year, but I did manage to surpass my goal of 50 books, and still managed to meet my secondary goal of 20K pages for the year--which tells you something about the average book size each of those years (361 p. average this year, vs. 293 p. last year and 277 p. the year before). Several long, slow slog books this year, too, which put a major dent in my totals.
