So I score K-O as 60/190 or just a bit under 32%.  Looks like I have some work to do here.  I suppose if I keep to my plan and spend a fair bit of time in the next year going through Mahfouz and Narayan, I can get up to 40%.

Not quite sure how well I'll do with P-Z (and the grand total), though there are a number of short poetry collections that I have read; however, this is somewhat countered by a nearly complete set of Steinbeck, of which I've read little.  I should be able to tabulate by the end of the weekend.  Very, very preliminary calculations suggest that I will be over 35% for all fiction/poetry but won't hit the 40% mark.  There's definitely a lot left to read (400+ individual works), but still doable.  At my current rate of reading (and allowing myself to get sidetracked by slipping in other non-canonical and non-shelf books), I'm looking at another 8 or 9 years.  Maybe a decade at worst...
