I read 164 books in 2015 and tracked them all in a spreadsheet. Here’s what I learned.
Now that’s a headline I can get behind.
This is an awesome article from Vox by a librarian who read a whole bunch in 2015, tracked it and learned some lessons.
Sounds a lot like me, right?
I read more than a hundred books each year and have cataloged them for years. I’ve even examined the racial and gender diversity in my reading, just like the author. Good stuff.
The author even has this awesome spreadsheet for all the books she read this year. Pretty freakin’ great.
The article has some great lines:
- Reading is amazing; it shouldn’t be a chore, and when it became one, I stopped doing it.
- There will never ever be enough time to read every worthwhile book.
- Deliberately seeking out new literary voices expands my perspective and pushes me out of my comfort zone. Ultimately, I hear more stories, and my life is richer for it.
It’s good to see I’m not the only book nerd cataloging all my books to glory in the joy of reading.
