Books I Read in 2021
This year I managed to read 20 books, two more by the 18 targets in 2021.
This is four books more than I read in 2020 and 6 more compared with 2019.
I managed to read 5968 pages compared to 4852 pages in 2020, the shortest book being “The Inner Game of Tennis” of 134 pages and the longest “How to Bake a Perfect Life” of 416 pages. The average length in 2021 is 298 pages.
From 20 books, 9 non-fiction and 11 fiction. Interesting, I haven’t read any biographies this year.
