2 thoughts on “Books I have read

  1. I am amazed that you can keep a list of the books you have read, both because i couldn’t be bothered and because I have read so any (admittedly a lot of them not great literature, just for enjoyment and I am sure would be looked down upon by many people).
    Well gone, i wish I had started keeping a record.


    1. Thanks for the comment. It’s not a complete list as I only started it when the blog / website started a few years ago. Every so often I start to read a book and think ‘I’ve already read this’. So it gets added to the list.
