By the numbers:

Total: 61 (plus several mss and a bunch of books that I’m in various places in.) My goal was 70, so I was pretty close.
Non-fiction: 9. I did better than I expected here.
Adult: 4. And worse here.
Graphic Novel: 3. This is a new category for me to look at. I’ll read anything Telgemeier writes. Who else should I read?
Newbery: 6. This year’s winner plus the winners from 1965-1969. It’s been fun to read the winners in order with Jo Knowles.

All in all, not a bad year. I’ve already stacked my January books!
