Somewhere along the line, I forgot how to count

Yes, I'm still reading my GG books. I just haven't mentioned it, for now good reason. But looking back, I last said I was at #35. But this can't be right. Somewhere along the lines, I screwed up.

Since I last mentioned it, I have completed Alice Munro's The Progress of Love (1986), and The Pied Piper of Dipper Creek (1943) by Thomas H. Raddall. I'm now working through Little Man (1942) by G. Herbert Sallans. So, according to my claim earlier of being done #35, I would have been now at #38. BUT, according to this list of completed books, I'm actually at #40:
