The best thing about last year's reading? I cracked 80 books! Multiple plane trips and several week long vacations away from the distractions of the house are very good for my reading...

I'll be honest, diversity of subject matter still isn't my strong point, but I managed to mix in a fair amount of non-fantasy/scifi reading. I'm not going to promise anything for next year, but I'll keep more diversity as a long term goal. Other than that, I'm cutting way down on challenges next year, so we'll see where that leads me.

There were only a couple of books I started this year and couldn't finish. Here's hoping I have no entries in that category next year.
