I’m a voracious reader with wide ranging interests and a large personal library, but until recently, I hadn’t kept track of what I’ve read or when.
So, inspired in part by Sarah Weiman who read 462 books in 2008 (!), and by other friends who’ve made it a habit to record what they’ve read, I’ve decided to keep a simple list of the books I’ve finished this year.
Where I can I’ve included links for those interested in checking out a title and following along, though of course your first stop should always be your local bookshop. Footnoted links identify where reviews or essays featuring specific books have appeared.
