In 2011 I started a project to identify all
the books I have read, the books that have shaped the way I write and what I seek out when I want a bit of
relaxation, self improvement or mind-stretching. The list grew, and I tried to work out how many I'd read - that
would give me an estimate of how many I could remember. I guess it is somewhere in the region of 750-800 (there was
a big gap of maybe 15 years when I had little time to read).
The list does not include text books, or children's books.
Neither does it include the countless books on sailing that I have devoured over the years.
These are the ones I can remember - I'm still adding to it.
It got too big for a page here, so it's over on goodreads.com (with all the relevant book bios and the reviews I've
had time to write).
523 and counting - and a lot forgotten!
