This Time Last Year I Was Reading ...

I love keeping records and lists. I'm not sure if that makes me a nerd, a geek or just an excessive stationery consumer! I so enjoyed looking back and reminiscing over books I'd previously loved when I created the first of these posts last month that I thought I could make it a regular feature I've linked to my review post if there is one or pre-blogging-days books are linked to Amazon.
Here's the books I was reading on (or around!) this date in years gone by ...


November 2018





November 2012
Fairy Tales From The Brothers Grimm 
by Philip Pullman



November 2011
From A Clear Blue Sky 
by Timothy Knatchbull



November 2010
To Build A Fire

  1. I was in a slump this time last year but I'm pleased to be doing much better this November. I think this is a really interesting feature and it was something that got me thinking about showcasing books each week from years gone by.

    1. I hadn't realised just how far back my Goodreads went. It's great to be reminded of the books I loved, though there's others I scarcely remember at all!

  2. I did much better this year than I did last year. I didn't even make it to my goal of 100 books for the year last year.

    1. It's surprising how much reading can change from year to year

  3. I love how much variety there is in your reading. I am not sure how far back my records go.

    1. I've got all this from my Goodreads. I had Shelfari before that and must have imported all my records from there which was remarkably organised of me!

  4. This is such a cool idea for a post! If I did it, I could only go back to 2014 because that’s when I started keeping records of what I read.

    1. Thanks Aj!
      2014 would still be 5 years of reading. For me the biggest book changes have been since I started blogging and reviewing books

  5. I should do this. My reading tastes have changed so dramatically - it would be interesting to see what I was reading years ago.

    1. I was surprised by just how many more books I read now than a decade ago. I hadn't realised there'd been such an increase because I had thought I always read so voraciously!

  6. This is cool! I wish I'd kept records. :)
