The Reading List Revisited

I posted my Reading List over a year ago now and I wanted to see how many books I have read from my list since, I also added a few books that I read and thought they just had to go on the list too! I have read 9 this year but started many more and have read many that aren't on the list. So far in total I have 49 from the list and have started 15 more. Luckily, I now have most of these books on my Kindle so I better get cracking!
