Birth Year Readings V

Round 5! I’ve no interest in a Fitbit so reading is pretty much the only aspect of my life I’m curious about tracking. Since September 28, 2011 I’ve read 199 books! Which is mildly impressive (“Hello Ladies!”)…and yet it doesn’t dent all that is constantly published, what else I’d like to consume and the dark and strange corners my curiosity pushes me into…asking better questions is far more fun than getting answers: I’m born in the wrong era I’d totally fit in on a Star Trek 5 year mission. Onward, forever forward I go.

To Recap:
Year 4: September 28, 2014 to September 27, 2015 I read:
360 comic books

56 books

100 comic book trades/graphic novels

Year 3: September 28, 2013 to September 27, 2014 I read:

442 comics

65 books

115 comic book trades/graphic novels

Year 2: September 28, 2012 to September 27, 2013 I read:

466 comics

43 books

100 comic book trades/graphic novels

Year 1: September 28, 2011 to September 27, 2012 I read:
486 comic books

35 books

99 comic book trades/graphic novels

And now…here’s where I’m at with Year 5:
