Level up! 1000 read books.

As a RPG gamer, I always think that the first few levels are intentionally easy, but having past the first ten level ups, things get more difficult.

  • Level 26: ARC-free
  • Level 27: 1000 read books

A month ago was my last Level up! ARC-free.

Goodreads tells my that I’ve read 1,000 books.

At least that’s the number of books that I’ve registered there. Most of the computer science stuff that I read professionally doesn’t count. Same for books I read as student.

But give or take that’s the number I deal with. At first glance, that sounds huge, like 50 shelves filled with books, a small library!

On the other hand, it isn’t really a life full of reading. Years of negligence, other interests diminish the number I could have achieved. Yes, life came into the way of reading. And I won’t ever promise that I’ll keep up any pace.

I won’t ever be able to read all the best books. Reading time has an undefined upper limit, and I’m facing that remaining time. Maybe another 1000 books, who knows?

I just hope for many five star books!

What’s your reading count? Can you visualize that number filling shelves?

    Impressive! My goodreads says 659 atm, but that excludes hundreds of books I read as kid & teenager. It also excludes a ton of course material, articles, newspapers, magazines, etc.
