Not Dead, Year in Review, ETC.

No, I’m not dead. I just don’t feel like blogging any more lately. At all. But, for my own curiosity, here are my book reading stats from last year:

By category:
Short Story Anthologies: 5

Nonfiction: 12
Young Adult: 9
Mystery: 5
Generic Fiction: 9
Most read author: Lois McMaster Bujold
2nd Place: Agatha Christie
Books I read on my iPhone: 3
Most enjoyed book this year: one of the Vorkosigan Saga. Any one of them, really.
Least enjoyed book this year: there were many & I decided that life was too short, so I didn’t finish them & they aren’t on this list.
