I can read quite quickly and I tend to read a lot. So since 2004 I’ve made a bit of an effort to track what I’ve been reading, to get a sense of scale of the whole enterprise. This list will cover only the books I’ve read, and it will be in reverse chronological order. Let’s go!

So here’s what I’ve been reading since the beginning of the year:
