2015 in Books

This year I took ebooks and comics with me when visiting the in-laws and took advantage of having books on my phone to read in idle moments when listening to podcasts wouldn’t make sense – say I needed to be able to hear my name being called. So I was able to read 86 books this year (287% of my Goodreads goal of 30). Although audiobooks mess this stat up, I read 21,160 pages according to Goodreads. Also according to Goodreads my least popular book was Big Pulp: Ted Bundy’s Beetle which was only read by one other person. My most popular book was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone which was read by nearly 4 million other people.

I read a lot of different things this year. I read Terry Pratchett’s last adult Discworld book. I read my first ever romance book, Tiger Eye, and learned they can actually be good. I also read my first erotic comic – Sunstone and saw that could be tastefully done. I also finally finished the Harry Potter series. But the BEST book of 2015 for me was Wool. The genre and the writing were great and I recommend it to everyone. The audiobook was well done, so if you need something to listen to while you drive – I highly recommend it.
