This Is How We Read – eg. Number of books read so far, genre you read the most from, picture of favorite (or most often used) reading location, most read author, % eBooks, hardcovers, paperbacks and/or audiobooks, hint at what your favorite read of the year is (let us guess), types of books you wish you read more of, month you read the most and least)
Early this year I set myself a goal on Goodreads to read 200 books and I have read 221 so far. (Last year I read 291 books). Do note that this number does include a lot of comics, which tend to be fast reads! This year, so far I have read 116 comics/graphic novels (!!), although this doesn’t include my current reread of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series.
