In 2023, despite still only reading a modest amount, I almost tripled the number of books I read per year. The two things I did differently this year were participating in an alumni book club and using Goodreads to set a reading goal and track my reading.
I quite enjoyed being part of the alumni book club, which introduced me to Latin American authors I’d never read or even heard of before. It also meant that I read more fiction than non-fiction, also a change for me this year. With the exception of Elvis and me, I learned that I’m not much of a memoir person.
In 2024 I plan to continue to track my reading digitally but I’m on the hunt for a Goodreads replacement. If you know or use another tool, please drop me a note. I’m also hoping to join at least one new book club. The book discussions I participated in this year were a highlight of 2023.
