Currently reading: The Oxford History of Britain, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Complete Sherlock Holmes


Even though I haven't been updating, I've been reading quite a lot recently. My progress looks like this as of today: 


23 / 100
(23%)
 

I haven't progessed as far as I wish I had, but compared with last year (I didn't make a list, but it certainly wasn't that much reading) it's still pretty good, what with uni and everything.

My updated list is here: 100 books )
