Well, I managed to read a respectable 65 books this year. Most of the non fiction books were audible books that I listen to while I drive, so that always helps my numbers. For the most part I was successful in choosing good books, which is why my ratings are usually fairly high. I’m hoping to continue with about the same number of books next year. If you are on GoodReads, I’d love it if you friend me, I love keeping up with everyone through their reviews! (Post contains affiliate links).
