List of Books

Originally I said I would make a list of all the books I read this year. I kept forgetting I was keeping the list, so some of the books I read are probably not on here. And I kept that list through June 24 when I had a list of 383 books.

I kept reading, but I didn’t keep writing them down because I was too embarrassed to admit that most of the books I read are romance novels. Romance novels. Not the big thick one that have lots of bad things happen to the people in them, but the smaller ones which are generally less traumatic and generally more encouraging at the end. I know that I’ve read over 400 more of those this year since I quit keeping a list, because I was given three hundred and I borrowed some from my mom and I bought some.

Here, however, is a list of the books that I read this year that aren’t romances. I didn’t include any children’s books I read because they’re children’s books. But here, as of right now, are the 94 books I read at least once this year. (Many of these I read multiple times.)
