As the result of a recent conversation, I decided that it might be worth producing a list of all the books I'd read in a year (along with some brief commentary.) This decision was solidified by something I just heard in a podcast: that the average person reads five books a year. (Of course, this information was followed by "but the average person will listen to 17 audio books a year", and comes from a company selling audio books, so I'm not sure how accurate it is!)
Now, I do a lot of listening in the car -- to podcasts, most often, with a few audio plays (and even the occasional audio book) thrown in -- and I don't manage to read as much as I would like (so many distractions, so little time.) However, I'm fairly confident that I read at least 17 books a year. While I may write the occasional review of a novel, I generally don't have the time -- so this format may be of passing interest to somebody.
Anyone out there interested in what Pete is reading? :-)
Oh, and for those who are wondering: no, my memory is not that good. I have external memory: I'm just the sort of sad little geek who keeps a database of all his books, and as I read each one I add the date I finished it!
