2016 was an interesting year. I set out to read with a little more purpose. I wanted to read more books outside of my comfort zone something a little more than white males writing about history. So this year I read 98 books. 17 books were by females and 11 books by different nationalities. Of the 98 books I read most I got from my local public library, they now know me by name when I walk in there to get my hold stack now. I also received quite a few books for review. So out of the 98, I know this isn’t good for authors but I only purchased 1 book this past year.
Some Highlights include
8 books written between 1851-1952
Best book I read this year:
F – Man Called Ove
So now that it is 2017 I don’t know what I will read. This last year stretched my reading from reading more authors of color and random topics I never knew I would be interested in like Rust, or Traffic. One thing I do want to keep up is the ever growing list of random topics, and the joy of reading.
