Since Jan 1st. Ashamed that I'm only 130 pages in (~660 total). Life just keeps getting in the way were I don't make the time to sit down and read. Been over-indexing on my career and reading technical stuff after hours. It usually takes me a month or two to get through a book. But half a year later and I've barely put in a dent.

It also doesn't help that the book is mind-bending and incredibly postmodern and effectively has a plot structure not unlike the movie Inception, with footnotes taking over the entire page for several pages before falling off completely. Not exactly a "quick read before bed."

Taglines are really, really fun to write.

There's a ton of cliche taglines out there, but it's almost to the point where it's odd to fine one that isn't cliche.

Unfortunately, my all time favorite isn't from a VN, but is from a book that really could benefit from being turned into a mystery / horror VN.

The House of Leaves has a full and mostly blank page dedicated to its epic one-line opening.

House Of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. You have to read a physical copy though. I don't know how an audiobook would even work.

The Passage by Justin Cronin was pretty good although books 2 and 3 didn't really live up to the first one.
