All the books I read this year


My year starts in mid-November (my blog, my rules). Last year, I read an astonishing 85 books! That is too many books.

This year I was doing lots of reading for my MSc - which was mostly academic papers. I also didn't have any long relaxing breaks. But, nevertheless, I'm happy to have read 42 books. Not bad!

Montage of about 42 book covers.

A few stats. The gender split was roughly 50:50. Some of the books were compilations and I think a few of the authors are non-binary. I'm pretty happy with that balance.

As per my usual reading habits, I alternate between reading fiction and non-fiction. A straight split down the middle.

There were a couple that I didn't finish - I'm reading for pleasure and don't need to slog through turgid prose. Well, that's what I tell myself. I still feel guilty!

So, what did I learn?

This year? MORE READING! I've got a stack of unread eBooks which give me guilty feelings every time I open up my eReader.

If you have written a book - please let me know and I'll try to get to it by this time next year.
