This is the first year I’ve ever bothered to keep track of how many books (and which ones) I’ve read. I mean, I read a lot, but it’s never occurred to me to track my reading. At the end of 2020 a friend commented on how many books she read and how it stacked up to the year before, and I thought, “Huh. I wonder how many I read?”
So, being the spreadsheet fanatic that I am, I set up a sheet on my 2021 project tracker — yes, I keep a spreadsheet of what projects I have in the works and move them from the “in process” sheet to the “completed” sheet when I finish — for books read, including those novels I’ve beta read for friends.
And the answer is: *drumroll, please!* I have read 130 novels in 2021.
I wonder how many I’ll read in 2022?
