📘 Library

Below is a list of books I've read, separated by year. This list was created as part of my 2019 New Years resolution to read more. Books read before 2019 are listed together in the Books read prior to 2019 section. I attempted to put them in order read, ascending, but those may be off. All books categorized in a year are in order of when they were read, ascending.

The data is being populated from my book tracking project. As of 2023, I no longer set a goal for myself so it doesn't get in the way of enjoying reading.
