With the year half over, I thought I'd take a quick peek back at what I've read so far. I have nearly one hundred items (ninety-six, to be exact) on my list, with only one item in progress. Here's a quick breakdown by category:
Magazines: Thirteen completed, one in progress. They're evenly divided between Scientific American, which I read in paper format, and Locus, which I read on my Kindle. My Locus subscription just ended; I'm debating if I want to renew it.
Book Format: Not counting magazines, I've read thirteen books in paper. Everything else (sixty-nine!) has been in Kindle format. I haven't completely switched to e-book format -- I may never do so -- but it sure predominates my reading.
Genre: Some of these books could have fit into multiple genres; for example, much of the YA could have also been classified as science fiction. (I tend to read these books more for the SF aspect than the YA part.) But here's how I categorized them:
It's pretty obvious which category is my favorite.
Despite all this reading, my to-be-read paper pile and Kindle collection are larger than ever.
I'll do another reading wrap-up at the end of the year. In the meantime, how many books have you read so far this year? Have you noticed any trends in your reading?
