I figured since I’ve been a more voracious reader this year than I’ve been since pre-college that I would do monthly updates with what I’ve read.
Last year, I started using my Goodreads account more seriously and participated in 2014’s Reading Challenge where you set your own reading goal and track your progress. This year, I decided to go with 32 books which now seems like such a small number. However, in 2014 I went with a goal of 26 books. Which would be a book about every 2 weeks. I surpassed it by a lot. 45 books, but 25 of them were single issue comics, picture books from the comic shop or books of photographs with blurbs that I re-read in order to decide if I should konmari them out of my life.
So really, I feel like I didn’t meet my goal.
But this year I was reinvigorated, and I set up some rules for myself: prose books count no matter what, trade paperbacks and graphic novels count. Single issues of comics do not. I have a massive TBR stack of comic related bits (actually a basket from Home Goods) and I am steadily making my way through. And that’s how I read 30 books by the end of June.
So, onto the books!
