Caracabe's books read, reading, and to read, 2022

My reading log for 2022, counting only books started this year. I usually have three books going at once, typically one nonfiction (read over breakfast), one fiction (after work), and one poetry (bedtime). I read poetry more slowly than fiction, and fiction more slowly than nonfiction.

I may also post some book reviews.
