Semiannual Reading Update

Every six months or so, I go through my book list on Goodreads and summarize what I've read. As of Sunday evening, I've read 104 books this year. My goal is 200, so I'm on pace. Here's the breakdown:

Fantasy: 43
Science Fiction: 12
Other Fiction: 24
Non-Fiction: 25

Of these books, about sixteen were in paper format, which I think is a little higher than in previous years. I've been borrowing a mystery series from the library, so that accounts for the increase in paper books.

I'm not ready to pick favorites for the year yet, but here are a few books that stood out for me:

Meatonomics (this book convinced me to become a vegetarian)
Gooseberry Bluff Community College of Magic
America's Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines
Paladin of Souls
Lies My Teacher Told Me

Most of this list is non-fiction; only two of them are fantasy. At the end of the year, I'll pick favorites from each category.

As for what I'm reading now, I'm juggling All Joy and No Fun (parenting, paper), Quantum Zoo (SF, Kindle), and Ancillary Justice (SF, Kindle).

How's your reading coming along so far this year? Any favorites? Do you do most of your reading with paper or electronic books?

You'll be healthier as a vegetarian I'm sure.
I'm in awe of how many you've read.

I don't know how many I've read so far, but you're way ahead of me.
