Prior to last year, I’ve had a low point of 8 books. I’ve hit a high point of 31 books twice. Last year, working from home for the entire year, I finally met and surpassed my goal, finishing with 54 books finished.
Since I have nothing but time again this year, now that I am officially a remote worker, I’m going to give it another go. I’ve got plenty of new books stocked up in the Kindle app on my iPad, not to mention one or two birthday and Christmas presents and my handy dandy library card, so I’ve got a good pile to start with. As a reminder, the rules I am using are:
- You can count a book as read as long as you have completed the book in 2022 and at least 50% of that reading takes place in 2022
- Any book counts as long as you’re not embarrassed to count it.
- Poetry collections do indeed count.
- Re-reading a book is okay as long as it isn’t done this year. (Reading Twilight twice in 2022 only counts as 1 read)
- Audiobooks also count.
My first book of the year looks like it will be The Night The Lights Went Out, Drew Magary’s memoir about his traumatic brain injury and his subsequent recovery. Here’s hoping 2022 is another good year when it comes to books.
