I pulled the plug on television at the end of 1992, which leaves plenty of time for reading.

This page lists the books I have finished between January 2010 and June 2017.

NOTE: 0.0 = the amount in percentage of these books which I consumed on iPad, eBook, Kindle, Nook or similar soul-sucking, culture-destroying devices.
