My reading list

is a mix of ebooks, physical books, and intended-to-read books, so it's hard to photograph. WhatNext is intended to handle reading lists as well, projecting how many days or months or years into the future it will take to complete one's list at the current pace. But I haven't timed any books yet. And how should books be baselined? Small Medium Large? Number of pages? I've zoomed through a dozen shortish SF books while being stalled in Capital for months. This is a huge problem for WhatNext's approachestimate, record historical data, and then project.  Recording historical data reading books means tracking multiple short episodes of a long period of time, multiplied by each book.  And who has a timer at hand when they pick up a book?  Of course, the transition to ebooks could completely solve this; I guess I'll go dig into my Kobo and see if it makes that data available to me, the owner, or just to the Rakuten corporation.

Anyway, the list:
  1. Debt (read it, but it's the kind of book that doesn't feel read until one has typed up one's notes and reflections)
  2. Capital in the 21st Century
  3. Little Women
  4. Anne of Green Gables
  5. Forever
  6. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
  7. Pride and Prejudice
  8. The Quarry
  9. Geek Sublime 
  10. Thinking, Fast and Slow
  11. The Denial of Death
  12. The Three-Body Problem
  13. My Real Children
  14. the new William Gibson
