2017 Reading Wrap-Up: Fourth Quarter

Ahh… the last quarterly reading wrap-up of the year. The amount of items read dropped this quarter since I had less time and opportunity to read, and also because I read more novels than comics and audio books, which can be quickly consumed. However, I am proud of my progress because I read more than I thought I’d be able to and have surpassed my reading goal for the year.
