The year isn’t quite over yet, but the book I just started reading is going to take more than the next week to finish, so I think the books I read for 2022 is pretty much wrapped up.
During the pandemic I started to read much more than ever before. In 2021, I read 33 books, and this year I set a goal of 40 books, hitting it last week. I’m going to stick with that goal for next year too.
I’m also going to stop using Goodreads. Our Micro.blog companion app Epilogue does everything I need and it integrates with my blog, which is where I want my book reading progress.
I wrote a Micro.blog plug-in that makes it easy to add a list of books you’ve finished to your blog. So here it is below! Each book cover should link to the microblog post where I blogged about finishing the book.
The next version of Epilogue will have this feature built-in. I hope to get it approved by Apple and Google in time for the new year.
At Micro.blog we love books. We don’t love worrying about stats — no follower counts, no pressure! — but I’ve found that setting a personal reading goal helps me make time to read, and it’s fun to reflect on at the end of the year.
