      Hey thanks Geoff! Yeah I started keeping track of everything I read a few years ago, back when we still lived in Saskatoon. I found I was starting books and, after a while, things were getting familiar… because I’d read them already! The list helps cut down on that problem, for sure.

      This is the first time I’ve ever digitized the list, it’s always just been in a dollar store notebook. This is way more easily searched (CTRL-F, everybody!) and neater too (my handwriting is often indecipherable).

      There’s still a lot left to do, though. It’s one of those projects I will finish one day! I’ve gotten it back to all of 2011 done. But yes, when I finish a book, I pop it on top of the list (it’s all reverse-chronological). Check back when you like, I’m usually adding newly finished stuff on a regular basis!

    Fifty Shades? Ha, dude.
    (I read the book too, but won’t read beyond the first one. I had enough of him “cocking his head to one side”.)


    1. keepsmealive says:

      Yup, this list is warts and all! There’s probably other embarassing things in the lists too, and as I add more we’ll just have to see! I sometimes read those big cultural phenomenon books (like Dan Brown, etc) just to see why everyone’s yapping about them. The 50 Shades books were so hilariously bad. You didn’t miss anything by skipping the last two. It was only the completist in me that made me read them all. 😉
