2014

Welcome to The Library, where I log a running tally of the books I’ve read over the course of the year. I began keeping track on this website in 2010 when I read a total of 59 books. In 2011 I read 95. In 2012, the number was 78. And in 2013? 62. My goal each year is to read at least 52 books. One a week. Time now to dust off a fresh page and get to work on the 2014 collection.
