My List of 2017 Reads

2017 ReadsFive years ago, I decided to start blogging about every book that I read over the course of the year.

This is an exercise that I would encourage anyone to do. Not only does it give you a chance to share what you read with an audience, but it gives you some pretty interesting data to look at.

I love having this collection of posts to look at, to compare what I read the last few years with what I am currently reading, to see any trends that appear, and to check to see that I am reading a variety of different material.

Here are some of the stats from the last five years.

2012 – 65 books total.

(16 novels, 33 Graphic Novels, 4 Hip-Hop, 4 Teaching-Related, 3 Memoirs, 2 Non-Fiction, and 1 on Writing)

2013 – 61 books total.

(14 novels, 37 Graphic Novels, 2 Memoirs, 2 Non-Fiction, 6 Teaching Related)

2014 – 78 books total.

(11 novels, 50 Graphic Novels, 3 Teaching-Related, 8 Non-Fiction, and 5 on Writing)

2015 – 60 books total.

(12 novels, 31 Graphic Novels, 2 Teaching-Related, 3 Hip-Hop, 9 Non-Fiction, and 3 on Writing)

2016 – 65 books total.

(6 novels,  51 Graphic Novels, 1 Teaching-Related, 3 Music-Related, 1 Non-Fiction, 1 Memoir, and 3 on Writing)

It looks like I should try to read more novels this year and maybe a few less comics. Maybe.

Either way, this post will be updated throughout the year every time I finish reading a new book. So, bookmark this page and come back often to get some information on some titles you can add to your own reading list.

Happy Reading!
