My goal for 2015 was to read 35 books. While I fell far short, having only read 20, I still feel pretty good about making it over half way.
Only 4 of the 20 books were non-fiction, but given that only 4 of 35 were non-fiction last year I’m totally calling it a win.
This list represents about 6,459 pages. Or, since I listen to a lot of audiobooks, only 2,175 pages plus 107 hours of audio. I listen to books at an average of 1.5x normal speed so the actual number of hours I spent listening to books is closer to 71. That’s just over an hour of listening per week or almost 12 minutes a day.
That’s not including the time I put into reading The Book of Mormon, which I think I remembering finishing again in 2015. I don’t track it like the other books I read. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve read it. I’m currently re-reading it in Spanish.
Anyway here’s the list of books I read this year, organized by date read. Here’s the same list on Goodreads.
