Book Log

I read a lot. I've been keeping a book log since the beginning of 1999. I've read 1839 books since then (about 92 books per year).

Below is the list for this year. See complete list.

The Fugitive

Organizational Theory, Design, and Change (7th ed.)
by Gareth R. Jones I got a good price on this textbook even though it seems to be the current edition. Seems like an interesting subject.

15 books finished so far.

4,202 pages in the selected books (an average of about 280 pages each).

That's an average of about 24 days per book (assuming no overlap) or 7 days per book (taking actual overlap into consideration), which is equivalent to 15 books (or 4,213 pages) per year. Or 12 pages per day, actually.

Typical number of books in progress simultaneously: 0.

Fiction books: 12 (80%)
