Armchair Travel

My reading has taken me to countries like Argentina, Australia, Hungary, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mozambique, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Zimbabwe, and many more.


Reading Diversely

Another aim for next year is to read more POC authors!

Book Formats

I borrow a lot of books from the library, pretty much all the books read this year were library books.

Just 5.3% of books were print books, 1.8% audiobooks, and a solid 93% were ebooks.

Books in Translation

Just 12% of my reads were translated works. I want to read more translated books next year.
