So… Which books have I actually read?

If you read my blogpost about The List you might be wondering: ‘well, Shee, have you actually read any of your books? I mean… that’s a pretty extensive list.’

I have read some of the books I own – I’ve read a lot of my books, actually. 


No, seriously, I have. 

But my read to unread owned books ratio seems skewed because I constantly keep adding to the ‘unread’ pile by buying more books. Whereas, in order to add to the ‘read’ pile, I have to, you know, actually read them – and we know my not reading is the very reason for this blog (see here if you want more details on that).

But I do and have read a lot of my books. And, to show you (and myself) how many of my books I’ve read I’m going to…





Now, bear in mind this list is a list of the physical books I’ve read that I currently own.

This is not every single book I’ve read in my life.

It also doesn’t count books I’ve borrowed and returned, ebooks I’ve read, audiobooks I’ve listened to, stories I’ve read on fan fiction sites or any other website where people submit their own stories.

I will probably end up reviewing some of these books, depending on how long ago I read them and what I remember of them. I also want to do some rereads but I’m not going to start rereading anything until I’ve read the books I haven’t read first. 

Let’s do this!
