2018 Reading

It occurred to me that it might be a good idea to actually track all the books I read (or listen to) over the course of the year, rather than just the ones that I read while on vacation.  Basically, once I run out of podcasts for the day, I switch to a book and once I’m done that, I listen through the podcast backlog, then cycle repeats.
