Fuller’s January 52 Books Summary

Ten books finished in January!


  • Three of these were started last year.
  • Two were graphic novels.
  • Of the ones that weren’t started at some unremembered date last year, the average reading time was roughly 5 days.

Here are the books in my book journal that weren’t complete as of 1 Feb 2017:

  • Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States (started 16 Dec 2016)
  • Miguel de Cervantes Don Quixote (started 20 Dec 2016)
  • John Dryden (translator) Plutarch’s Lives, Vol I (started 6 Jan 2017)
  • Oliver Sacks’ The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat and Other Clinical Tales (started 29 Jan 2017)

And here’s what I plan to start next:

  • Rion Amilcar Scott’s Insurrections: saw him read from it at Bird in Hand back on 28 Jan 2017.
  • Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad: an Xmas book as well as a writing class assigned reading for the end of the month.

So that’s where I am right now with my 52 Books.  I expect to have A People’s History and Don Quixote finished by the end of the month, which, with Sacks/Scott/Whitehead*, should put me six weeks ahead of the challenge.

* I don’t expect to ever finish Plutarch’s Lives.
