Year-end 2018 stuff: Everything I read this year


I was able to get through many more books in 2018 than in the previous year. I managed to read 18 this year, although only a dozen were new books; the other third of my list is comprised of the first six books in the Harry Potter series, which I’m currently almost through re-reading. I’m very okay with this — re-reading the HP series was a conscious decision which has brought me incredible joy.

In 2017, I only read four books and four comic book trade paperbacks in a year where I mostly favored podcasts while commuting. Before that, I did 14 books and 25 trades in 2016. The numbers aren’t as important to me as the general desire to continue reading, and really to read more voraciously. So I’ll set a general goal to get to 25 books and 25 trades in 2018.

Now here’s the list of everything I read in 2018 with accompanying links to the blogs I wrote and to purchase if interested.
