I had a less than stellar year, reading-wise. Not that I didn’t read lots of good books, I did; but the number of books I read is down. My usual goal is 104 books, two per week. So, a year with less than a hundred is somewhat disappointing.
I know several people (you know who you are!) who read many more books than this, but I’m not a terribly fast reader [as in: slow] so I have to be satisfied with what I manage:
This is also the time of year, and post, when I mention favorite books, but I’ll make that a separate post, in a few days. I also usually mention goals for the forthcoming year, in addition to the total of at least 104, such as reading more of one type of thing than another.
Last year I said I’d read more fantasy, and I did, fifteen of the fantasy and science fiction number was fantasy, much of it read early in the year. I’ll do more of that in 2020, as the last two volumes in a six book fantasy series I’m reading are due to be published this year.
I expect to read a few more graphic novels in 2020, starting with Watchmen in a week or so, and I have several things from British Crime Library awaiting my attention, plus a handful of ebooks burning a hole in the good old iPad Kindle app.
I hope you had a good 2019 reading year, and an even better one in 2020!
