An update on the road narrative reading: 07/14/18
A year ago April I posted an update on my reading for the road narrative project. At the time I had 336 books in my "roadtrip" list and I checked how many I had read. At the time I had read 73 books. That came to 22% of my list read through.
Fourteen months later I'm now at 675 books. I've read 142 of the list. That accounts for 2!% of the list, meaning my progress has stayed in place as I've added to my list.
If you compare the two lists, you'll see that I've dropped some books that I have dropped books that I decided not to read. I have dropped books to better reflect the direction my research is taking. For more information on what I'm reading now, please look at There are 216 road narrative stories (that I'm interested in) and Ignoring the eight percent.
Being realistic, will I ever read through the entire list? Probably not. I am constantly adding to it as new titles are released or as I am made aware of titles. It also evolves as my research takes me in new directions. That said, I think I will be casting a narrower net in the future now that I have very specific categories I am looking for.
