Reading Tally for 2018

Happy New Year!

Another year of wonderful books, active discussion, and new aspects to the blog! My audience grew, I expanded and then retracted different types of content, renamed and rejuvenated the blog, and continued to enjoy this crazy ride. It is time again to tally up the thousands of pages, and dozens of books, while looking back at what I read. I find it intriguing to reflect on what I read this past year and remember what was going on while I hid my face in those pages.

You will find below the total number of novels, fiction books, nonfiction books, and graphic novels I read in 2018, in addition to the total amount of pages, and what I read each month; the type of book is listed before the title and the authors are in parentheses.

I look forward to what 2019 has to offer and, as always, thank you for reading!

On the Subject of Revisiting Books

There are those who believe that a book should be read once and then passed on to its next reader; I am not one of them. Granted, many of the books I read end up becoming favorites of mine (19 of the books reviewed on my blog have been re-reads), but most end up being sold to a used bookstore (see On the Subject of Giving, Keeping, Selling, and Buying Books). I understand why people believe that once a book is read, all of its secrets and beneficial qualities have been leeched out through the act and that it has nothing left to give; I don’t agree with it, but I understand. So, I thought it would be interesting to discuss the reasons for re-reading a book.

As an aside, I feel like I would hit my head on one of those light bulbs.

Reading Tally for 2017

Happy New Year!

Another year of wonderful books, active discussion, and new aspects to the blog! My audience grew, I created Twitter and Goodreads accounts, added more content by beginning Music Monday posts, and continue to enjoy working on this blog. It is time again to tally up the thousands of pages, and dozens of books, while looking back at what I read. I find it intriguing to reflect on what I read this year and think about what was going on while I hid my face in those pages.

You will find below the total number of novels, fiction books, nonfiction books, and graphic novels I read in 2017, in addition to the total amount of pages, and what I read each month; the type of book is listed before the title and the authors are in parentheses.

Reading Tally for 2016

Happy New Year!

Many people are looking back at the year we leave behind and I figured that it would be appropriate to do here since keeping track of what I read in 2016 was what eventually began this blog. It started as simply seeing how many books and graphic novels I would read in a year since I had actual time to devote to recreational reading rather than articles or required reading while I was in college.

You will find below the total number of novels, fiction books, nonfiction books, and graphic novels I read in 2016, in addition to the total amount of pages, and what I read each month; the type of book is listed before the title and the authors are in parentheses.

I look forward to what 2017 has to offer and have some very exciting reviews and editorials planned.

As always, thanks for reading!
