Hi there,Hello - just found your thread - AMAZING! Will you be posting short reviews of all the books somewhere? Maybe noting some gems that are not part of any of the big series that are worth reading? Ty!
Thanks for the kind words.
I think this effort wasn't so much, at the start, about writing a review for each book, rather this was me just making it difficult for myself to back out of the project by giving it a public face. If I stopped reading the books then I would have to acknowledge that here... I am loathe to do that. This is my support group- the fine folk here keep me going.
So, I never really thought about scoring the books as I went on, or listing the best of... etc. Mainly because I read a lot (all of my life) certainly three books every two weeks, since... forever. Part of the problem of scoring books, giving them a mark out of ten, is that the process can be very subjective, and massively influenced by the reviewers mood etc. (certainly an amateur like me). Also, all of these books got published, so- someone saw their worth.
Also, now I'm thinking about it there are books I read at the start of this journey that I thought at the time were great, say a 9 out of 10, but now that I'm getting towards the 2/3rds complete stage, well- some of those 9s will have to be downgraded.
So, apologies but this is what this is, it's all it is- a list of books, a doofus reading 'em, and a lot of folk that should know better egging the doofus on.
Stay safe and well.
