Current Reads

I'll try this as an experiment, and we'll see if I can maintain it. If I keep updating it, I will keep it on the blog, ahead of the list of links that includes the various Year in Books, Year in Shorts and Year in Graphics entries.

I'm listing these as aBooks (audio), eBooks (elecronic, various formats) and pBook (paper, various sizes). In some cases you'll see more than one format listed, this is usually where I have both the electronic and audio formats and they can be synchronized. In many cases, I have both the eBook and the pBook, but you can't synchronize those two!

In the Current Reads folder of my Kindle, on the nightstand in paper form, on the magazine or comics racks (current as of July 25, 2019):

  1. As of about 1500 local, I'm about halfway done entering the "current reads" from the Kindle. It's time to take a break!

  2. Better than 90% updated at this point. Still a few paper volumes to unscatter from around the house and enter.
