Four years ago when I began studying at Oxford, the number of books I read for pleasure dropped drastically. In year 13, the year before I went to uni, I read 75 books. In my first year of uni I probably read 5 at best. Why? The reading list at Oxford is, quite frankly, insane. No matter what degree you study you’ll be presented with a very long reading list each week for a new essay but if you study a literature degree (i.e. Modern Languages or English), then you’ll also have to read the set texts.
Keep on reading to find out just how many books I read for my French finals in 4th year.
