Reading Log

the bookshelf with a ukulele

I have a growing stack of books.

But I’m slowly working my way through it.

I started tracking my reading habits in 2017. I wish I’d started sooner (although there was the occasional flirtation with Goodreads). While I’ve written some posts about what I’ve read, I thought it might be handy to just log everything on a dedicated page for anyone who’s interested. This is that page.
