I feel it bears mentioning here...

[ Goodreads 2015 Reading Challenge - completed! ]

At the beginning of this year, I set myself the goal of reading 52 books. It seemed like it should be a reasonable goal, especially for a librarian, and it also seemed as though I might find it challenging, with my years-entrenched habit of alternative media consumption. But a couple of topics grabbed me by the throat and demanded I Read! All! The! Books! I discovered audiobooks as a great way to pass the time spent behind the wheel of my car commuting. And so here I am, with two whole months and change left in the year, four books over my original goal.

At the end of the year, I'll sit down and get a better sense of the big picture of this year's consumption of books - how many were childrens' books, how many were comic TPBs (trade paperbacks - compiled runs of single issues of a title, for those not beholden to their LCS - Local Comic Shop - for their weekly fix), how many were audiobooks. For now, I can feel a sense of a relief that for all of the faffing about on the internet I do in my leisure hours, I am still A Reader.
