“You read a lot of books” is what a lot of people relay to me based on my activity on my Goodreads account. The truth is, sure, I may start and read a lot of books, but I don’t finish a lot of books. My abandoned pile of books is much larger than my finished pile of books.
I want to document and share the reality of my reading journey. This blog series aims to change that by holding me accountable to the books I’ve started, continued to read, kept in idle, abandoned, and finished.
In order to give myself a fair starting point, I’m only going to report on the books started this month, June 2022.
The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan
- This book has been on to TBR for years as I’ve had a general interest in the history of food.
North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail by Scott Jurek and Jenny Jurek
- I’ve been in a bit of a running rut and hoping this book brings inspiration.
I’m looking forward to reflecting on progress with these two books in next month’s update. Posts will be around the first of the following month to make sure all reading is accounted for from the previous month.
