my own book club (2021)

if you are familiar with this blog, you might know I started reading books (I won’t say exclusively, but a good 90% of them) in digital format back in 2016, with great results in terms of speed, satisfaction, user experience, availability of titles.

because I am an engineer at heart, I wanted to understand better what was the impact of digital on my book reading. here’s the result for last year, 2021, with number of books and pages read per month. I’ll be also posting stats for years 2016-2020 so we can reasonably start making some connections between the books I read and what was happening in my life and in the world.

here’s my book list for 2021, I read 27 books, a total of 9897 pages, with an average of 824,75 pages/month.
