I’d set my current level of reader to anxious. If there was a progress bar for this year I’d say I was 50% or less as I just don’t think I’ve read enough.
Of course there is always more to read. It’s impossible to read everything I know but you should be able to look back and go my 33 year-old self and not think I should have read more.
Not that I haven’t read some great books; Ready Player One, Hollow Pike, Whispers Underground (audiobook), A Place of Execution, The Song of Achilles, The Case of the Missing Servant, This Night’s Foul Work, The Long Earth, Redemption in Indigo, Now You See Me, The Apocalypse Codex, The City’s Son, Orbus (audiobook), A Death in Valencia, The Steel Remains, The Snow Child, Or The Bull Kills You, The Somnambulist to name a good chunk.
I’ve been reading through short story collections too but I’ve probably read under a book a week, which is still pretty good in this age of distraction, but still leaves a huge list of books I haven’t yet read and would love too. Don’t worry I’m not going to list them.
The only thing to do is see what my 34 year-old self can do to catch up!
So what state are you? Excited, Satisfied, Eager…?
