Year in books for 2022

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 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 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.

Legends & Lattes Babel The Lost Metal: A Mistborn Novel (Mistborn, 7) The Light of All That Falls Some Kind of Happiness An Echo of Things to Come All the Light We Cannot See The Shadow of What Was Lost The Slow Regard of Silent Things Anxious People: A Novel Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore Locklands Shorefall Foundryside The Wise Man's Fear Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen, 1) The Ten Thousand Doors of January My Neighbor Totoro: A Novel From the River to the Sea The Cartographers Under Heaven Big Wonderful Thing: A History of Texas (Texas Bookshelf) Enchanters' End Game Klara and the Sun Castle of Wizardry The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea The Paris Library: A Novel Magician's Gambit The Priory of the Orange Tree The Emperor's Soul Queen of Sorcery (The Belgariad, #2) Sixth of the Dusk Pawn of Prophecy (The Belgariad, #1) Stardust Termination Shock White Sand, Volume 1 (White Sand, #1) The Art of Wolfwalkers How to Stop Time The Republic of Thieves Red Seas Under Red Skies

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 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.
