Currently Reading

This page is to keep track of books I’m reading, to ensure I don’t have six unfinished books in progress, and to remind me to finish the ones I’ve started. I’m always reading or re-reading something, re-reads are in italic. I have over 10 years reading activity logged. Everything under a month is a book that I finished reading that month, there is also a section for “started but not finished” books at the bottom of the page.

I have an Amazon wishlist, and a Goodreads page too.
