My Book List

In 2015 I decided to start to track the books I have read. I am not someone who reads volumes and volumes and I will confess I find reading to be a challenge at times. 

Also in 2015 a rule about reading books – I would go back to a book 3 times and if after the 3rd attempt the book was still not gripping me then I would class it as a Did Not Finish and move on.

By this I mean I would pick a book and try to read it if I faltered or struggled I would stop and start something else. I would however keep the book on my reading list. I would repeat this 3 times.
