The Year in Words (The Reading List): 2022-2027

Because the first of these became a bear to scroll through, after a while – it did cover a decade, after all – I’ve shifted to five-year listings. At an average of 40-odd books per year, even with two columns, it might still be a bit of a bear to scroll through. That being said…

The one constant for a writer, besides actually, you know, writing stuff, is reading stuff.  This is the running list of books that have been run through during the year, as well as years past.

How it works: The books are listed under the year completed, by when they were completed (older at the bottom).  If it’s a book I have read before, it will be marked as “reread” (R).  This also assumes I’m reading a “dead-tree edition” unless there is an “(E)” next to it, for an ebook edition, or an “(A)” to indicate an Audiobook. “GN” indicates Graphic Novels or comic omnibus editions.

“O#” will be used to reference an Omnibus edition of books and how many books were collected, only if I read through the entire volume consecutively, with a footnote for the year it was read indicating the titles collected.

Due to the nature of my habits and my “To Be Read” stack, I am no longer listing the ones in progress, only the books that have been completed.
