My Reading List
I read a lot. I track my reading in Goodreads. Below are some statistics I've compiled over the last few years.
|2019||39 (102 projected)||13,370||342-page book every 3.6 days|
|2018||75||26,277||350-page book every 4.9 days|
|2017||75||27,263||363-page book every 4.9 days|
|2016||81||26,553||327-page book every 4.5 days|
|2015||37||11,619||314-page book every 9.9 days|
|2014||72||22,291||309-page book every 5.1 days|
Listed below are all 379 books I have logged on Goodreads with their star ratings, grouped by month. The linked title goes to my review.
Some titles do not have a star rating, usually because I felt I was the wrong audience for the book, in which case I didn't think it was fair to rate it.
