Reading Log continued

Here is the beginning of my reading log

It's been over a year since I started keeping a reading log, it has also been over a year since I started reading a lot. That has been one of the best decisions of my life, to start reading, I have fallen in love with books and I think it has made my writing so much better. You can see the large gaps in my reading, the earthquake definitely took a big toll on it, I jus couldn't concentrate on anything for months afterwards.
