Books I’ve Read since 4/2017

*Updated 12/21/2017

Also according to Sher, listening to audiobooks doesn’t count as reading. This post should technically be called “Books to Which I’ve Listened since 4/2017. I agree that listening to books doesn’t produce the same effects as sitting down to read them, however as a graduate student it would be nearly impossible to read all these books. I think audiobooks have their own merits, like hearing the book narrated by it’s own author or hearing the narrators speak with passion to emphasize passages in the books. I also know that when I’m reading a physical book, I often miss a lot when I phase out without realizing it. I’m a better listener than a reader, so I’m going to continue doing this.

Also sad that I didn’t make it to 100 books this year. But I got pretty close at 87 + the 2-3 books I plan to listen to while on break. And this is since April so I didn’t even have the full year.
