Goodreads goal for 2014: 100 books (again).
So far, I’m WAY ahead of the pace with 86 – Goodreads says that’s 12 ahead of schedule.
Recap: The way I’ve been recounting my book readings the past couple of years means overly long posts (100+ books with comments?). For 2014, I’ve decided to break up the year into quarters. Here’s my first three month summary of the 23 books I read, and my second quarter list numbering 31books. Below I list 32 more for the third quarter/summer.
For some reason, this year I’m picking books that are quite long – again, what’s up with that? George Martin’s catastrophe was monstrously long for little value added, and Hostadter’s GEB, while long (and dense), was the opposite.
For the third quarter:
- 17 nonfiction
- 15 fiction – more of a balance this quarter
- I’ve rated 2 more as five-star (you-really-should-read-this) on Goodreads – and another was fiction!
- I gave 0 books a one-star rating (not-only-no-but-really-no)…but a couple came really close..
- As before, I’ve linked all of my Goodreads reviews (even if only one line) to each title in case anyone is interested in what I thought beyond the commentary below. The review page links back to the Goodreads main page for the book.
