Muchos Libros

Since I discovered audiobooks I’ve been able to smash through dozens of books a year.  As I write this, I’ve completed 106 books for 2022.  It’s fair to say that audiobooks are my favourite form of entertainment, ranking above TV, film, music, and gaming.  One question I am often asked is what my favourite booksContinue reading “Muchos Libros”

2021 Reading Challenge – Part 4

I had set the goal of completing 104 new books in 2021. This includes physical books, ebooks, and audiobooks.
