I read 105 books in 2018, an average of two a week plus a bonus book.
My record-keeping is imperfect, but here are approximate author/subject identity breakdowns:
09% not published this century
05% non-fiction (non-memoir)
04% middle grades/children's
04% graphic novels
02% read for school
JERRY TOLD US ALL ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR CAT. I'M SORRY FOR YOU, BUT I THINK YOU STILL SHOULD HAVE COME TO THE MEETING. I GUESS YOU REALLY LIKE CATS. I'M ALLERGIC, SO I CAN'T SAY I LIKE THEM TOO MUCH. IT WAS NICE KISSING YOU. I HOPE WE CAN DO IT AGAIN SOMETIME. WRITE SOONM, OKAY?
I'm tempted to print out his letter just so I can crumple it into a tiny ball.
I did less reading for pleasure this month than I normally might have. I was focused on my final project for Doing Things with Novels class at the CUNY Graduate Center, where I am now nine credits away from a master's degree in digital humanities. My project partner Lauren Kehoe introduces our project with this post: Doing Things with Novels: Final Project (aka Catalogers as Authors, Metadata as Annotation or how Jenna and Lauren used ZineCat to write a paper using catalog records).
