I hope to read all the books that stay on the New York Times Paperback Non-Fiction Best Seller List for at least 2 weeks. Some I may even be able to cross off right away if I read them when they were on the Hard Cover best seller list.
I use the 2 week rule cause I feel that some books can make it to the top due to manipulation of sales but they cannot stay a 2nd week unless they have great sales.
Of course the other reason is that I don’t have time to read every book that makes it to the top.
I also may knock some of these books off using audiobook versions.
Having someone read a story to you is always enjoyable.
Non-fiction is not well served by way of audiobooks because if the books is any good I will want to take notes.
