Reading 2016

I only read 18 works this year. The four Jacobean tragedies were in a single Penguin volume. The cause of this falling away was the amount of time I spent on my Android phone while commuting… In 2017 I hope to restore my reading rate by buying paperback books to read while commuting, although I will continue to play chess on while travelling to and fro.
