I suppose you are wondering why I have gathered you all here today.
Well, I wrote it in haste, but as I think about it, I am ready to make a motion that we adopt our first new neologism: stryve. Try is very casual; strive implies a lot of effort over time; stryve is trying harder than try but not quite as hard as strive. Good for working up from 90 to 100 as a total-books-read-for-the-year stat (TBRY). Requires sustained effort, but in a pleasant way. More than just try, but not quite strive. Of course stryve is a homophone with strive, but I don't think that need stop us. Do I have a second?
