Books I’ve read this year

Does listening to audio books count as reading?

In the sense that listening to audio books takes me away to different worlds, introduces me to new people (characters), and makes me so invested in these new lives that I revel in their triumphs or feel sad at their despair … Then yes it does count!

In the sense that I am not physically turning a page as I read, then no.

The first is more important to me so I’ll stick with yes; listening to audio books does count as reading. Besides, how else am I supposed to survive my 120 mile commute to and from work?

Since we agree that it is reading, this is a list of all the books I’ve read this year (first-time only – if I really like a book I will read it several times):
