I lost mine when I cleared the data from an app *sad*
I thought it was backed up by Dropbox. Since I always synced it

I'm starting again from October...

Is someone a part of an online Book Club? I want motivation to read more in 2017...
Does Goodreads have one?

I lost track...

I know I read at least another 10 books since this update: some fiction - like I re-read the Great Gatsby & Gone Girl; I read The Loney, The Secret History (Donna Tartt -loved it!) and White is for Witching, and others I can't think of right now - and I read some non-fiction, too, one on Neil Gaiman, I am almost done "Shirley Jackson: A rather Haunted Life", a History of film music, etc...

For some reason I am much worse at keeping track of books than I am of movies!
