I love yearly wrap up posts and its a good way to postpone an overwhelming update.

In 2016, I...
attempted to read 55 books.
completed reading 21 books
  17 of these books were written by people I have either met over the course of work or are personal friends, which I thought was hilarious.

I am still reading 12 of these in 2017, and intend to at least attempt to return to the rest.

That is a VERY impressive list that anyone would struggle to complete. (very little fluff). Impressed you got through as much of it as you did!

Nothing that would probably help with what you are struggling with. I keep a January 1 post each year that summarizes what I have read, am reading, and want to read (the last is about 60 books long), so I'm not trying to do it all from memory at the end of the year. The to-read list helps when I go to the bookstore or library and I'm just yowling around the stacks indecisively...

[personal profile] featherynscale uses a listing website for much the same purpose, but it seems very intuitive. You might ask it what the name is.

http://triadruid.dreamwidth.org/704.html is my perma-post if you want to see the format; then I copy the read and reading parts into a fresh post for the actual year, and clear that section out for 2017.
