I'm always thinking about (and often tinkering with) my book reading "rules", per se. I've moved everything into Notion at this point, btw. I have all the books I've purchased and not read, plus all the books I "want to read". And of course all the books I've read over the last 7 years with ratings #nerd. I think it took the pressure off by getting them in there.

I do try to keep a fairly consistent goal of ~50 books a year because I think I could easily lose my way and find myself too often on my phone instead of opening a book, which I much prefer but the phone is too damn easy to grab and get distracted with.
