Book log

Submitted by asger on Tue, 01/22/2019 - 17:58
Back in 2009 I began keeping a log of the books I read. It's a mixture of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Thrillers, Murder Mysteries and a few computer science books. Some are in danish, some in english. As you can see, I didn't include the start and finish dates at first, but I quickly realized that it would be a good idea to include that information as well. I wish I had started this back when I was still studying at the university — back then I used to buy around 20 books each summer because the local book store was selling 5 books for 100 DKK (which is less than what one book usually costs), and now I have a hard time remembering which ones I've read.
