I pulled the plug on television at the end of 1992, which leaves plenty of time for reading.
This is a list of all the books I’ve finished between January 2010 and today.
Generally, I enjoy reading books that most others would not consider reading.
0.0 = the amount in percentage of these titles which I consumed on iPad, eBook, Kindle, Nook, tablet or similar soul-sucking, society-destroying devices.
