It’s a bit different from last year though since quite a lot of books are of the “I really should”-category as a result of simple space issues. You see, Where last years shelf was now is this:

The kids needed more room. Hence I went for “better safe than sorry”. I predict that as last year, 10 books not yet on the list will get read, the new Jack Reacher paperback comes to mind or C.C. Chapman‘s book once it’s published. In addition, I am really curious to see how much reading on the iPhone increases not reading speed per se, but reading productivity.

Let’s get going.

    Already read “Infinite Jest”? Tough but all the way worth it.

  • I am about 10% in but since the birth of #2 have focused more on shorter stuff. Like it so far though, a lot.
