My Year In Books

Goodreads are very wonderful at this time of year and they have given me stats for what I have achieved reading wise. My initial reading goal for the year was 100 books, to match my total from the year before. I smashed it this year! I had read 100 books by the middle of July, so I upped my total a couple of times, until I stopped at 130. Goodreads informs me that I have now read 154 books. I’m not sure that I will finish any more books this year, it would be nice to add another to the total to make it a nice multiple of five.
If you look at the breakdown of books, most of the things I read this year were trade paper backs or graphic novels… I don’t really know how this makes me feel. Sometimes it makes me feel like I am cheating to increase my total – as a trade paperback will normally only take me an hour or so to read so I can get through several in a day quite easily. Less than 50 of the books I read this year were actual novels, so I’m going to try and rejig how I work my reading challenge next year. I still want to record the graphic novels I read, but I want to make more of an effort to read more novels.
How do you factor comic books into your reading goals for the year?
