Books

Created: 2022-01-01 | Last updated: 2022-01-30

A list of books read and to be read. I only list books I haven't read before or have only partly read before.

2022-01-01: My goal for 2022 is to spend less time on the computer and more time reading. My starter goal is to have at least 12 books in the read list by the end of the year, one for each month.

♥ = favourite
★ = particularly memorable (includes nostalgia)
♫ = audio book
