In my lifetime I have read over a thousand books and watched hundreds of films and TV shows. Some of them I even remember!

To help with my memory since the start of 2022 I’ve been recording the culture that I have consumed. I tend to have lots of books “in progress” at any one time (usually all from different genres) so I set myself the rule that something can only appear in my “Culture Consumed” section only if I have either finished it or abandoned it, never to return.

I’m posting a monthly update in the blog pages. The most recent postings can be found here.
