Book club

This page is to track the selections from the McLeods book club, which ones I chose to read, and my progress on reading them. This list only goes back to the beginning of 2019, as that is all I had a record of.

Key:

  • ✔️ = chosen (✔️* = chosen but don’t have the book)
  • 📖 = started (and still intend to finish)
  • 📗 = finished
  • 📕 = abandoned

Book list:

  • Oct/Nov 2022 – Note: I was eyeing up both of these before they were selected, but I chose not to officially select one this time due to my reading slump, and knowing I wouldn’t make it to the Dec meeting
