I had never kept track of the books I read for a year before, but decided in March that I would try it this year. So, I puzzled out the books I knew I had read in January and February, and then kept track of the rest of the books I read for the year. Next year I won't read nearly as many books I don't think, as I start back up at school in January and will be reading mostly only books for school. I will keep track of that as well though. This has been an interesting experiment.

Here is the breakdown for each month of what I read this year.
