My to-read list.

I have a massive, massive to-read list. Large enough that in its current form, it would take me a little more than a decade to complete reading, at a rate of one book a week.

It has taken various iterations, from a massive spread-sheet to an attempted listed version in here, to now a goodreads version. I made an account because a good friend of mine kept bugging me to do so, and spent a few hours transferring books from my old list into this one, which I have to say was a surprisingly painless process. Thankfully.

Not, like, super-painless, but not awful.

So… Behold. A snippet of my list, roughly in order of which has the tallest cover.

Roughly 10% of my to-read list:

If you’re thinking “…that’s 10%? Do you literally just add everything everyone suggests you should read to your list?”

The answer is “almost always”.

If you’re thinking “…is that why you have a bunch of self-help books scattered throughout and sticking out like sore thumbs? in the middle of what looks to be fiction and academic non-fiction?”

…shut up.

You're Good Enough, You're Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like You!

 

…yes, that book is also in my list.
