*- Kindle ebook
??- 20KLutS was the first book I tried reading on my Kindle. I don't know how many pages I read before giving up because the Kindle pages are variable in size and smaller than normal. I gave up almost halfway through because Verne is even more wordy than Tolkien. Its not an adventure, its a travelogue of every island in the Pacific!!
#- I tried, but I just couldn’t finish this. Slow paced, a mix of mostly standard tropes, and the author keeps introducing new factions and characters. Blah.
@- This one took so long because I got ahold of the rules for The Expanse RPG and was sidetracked by that for a couple weeks

The year is up, but I'm still recording…
