What I Read in 2022

 At the end of each year I do a summary post of what I read throughout the year. I find it interesting to see my reading habits, and to make note of what the best books were each year. I read only 28 books this year, which is much worse than last. I use a standard five star rating method with five stars meaning I loved the book so much I intend to re-read it throughout my life, so there are rarely any five star books.

  1. Wasn't a good reading year for me either. And it's a very rare book I want to read a second time.

    1. I have many books I'd like to re-read, but I feel time is growing short and there are so many yet unread that it's hard to justify sometimes.
