2015 in Review

I saw everyone doing End-of-the-Year things and decided to do a bit of a year in review for myself! First, we have some brief statistics about my reading, and then I gave “awards” to some books! Reviews are linked in the titles. Tomorrow, I’ll be doing a follow-up to my Quarterly Goals (just so you know I haven’t forgotten!).

Reading Statistics

Number of Books Read: 55
Number of Pages: 13949 (I read a lot of graphic novels)
Average Rating: 2.9
Shortest Book: Authors for Goodreads
Longest Book: Law and the Legal System (hello, textbook)
Average Length: 268 pages (that’s rather short for me)
