My 2016 in reading

Just as we wrap up the year, I was pleased to get a little reminder of my year in reading in the form of my Goodreads Reading Challenge update.

Goodreads 2016

It’s nice to see all the covers of books I’ve read throughout the year, set out very nicely on this review page.

And my nerdy bookworm side is pleased to learn that I’ve read 19,121 pages of 47 novels this year! This is good news, since some days it seems all I read is work-related technical documents … so it’s good for me to know I’ve also carved out sacred time for the fun reading, too.

As I get ready to start my 2017 reading challenge, it’s nice to reflect on the reading highlights of 2016.

Hope you have all had an excellent 2016 in reading, and as this year comes to a close, wishing you all a wonderful start to 2017!

    Woah! Impressive, Kimberly! I’m pretty bad at keeping tabs, but 2016 has been a great reading year for me too. Happy New Year!

      So glad you had a great reading year, too, Evelyne. And best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful 2017!

    Today I shard some tweets on my favorite reads this year. Hope you enjoy reading through them 🙂 Glad we both are friends on Goodreads as well.

      Hi Ishita! And happy new year! I’ve been in the mountains and wonderfully unconnected from internet, but now that I’m back, I’m happy to catch up … and will take a look at your post. I know what a great reader you are of Italian authors, too. Buon anno, bella!

        Grazie cara! No worries…That means a lot although I think I am behind in my Italy reading. Ever since I have started learning Italian I feel it useless to read in English 😛 But then again I can’t yet read in Italian.
