the_other_sandy: Yomiko Readman hugging a book (Agt. Paper Chibi)
Total: 10,032 pages


In order to keep my giant pile of unread things from getting any bigger, my resolution for 2016 was to not buy a new book until I'd read at least one I already own. How did that go?

Yes, I am the Mayor of Failure. Fear my monocle. From Samhain Publishing announcing they were shutting down to BookBub and Goodreads pointing me at e-books I wanted on sale to Open Road Media offering thousands of e-books for free the weekend before Christmas, circumstances conspired against my success. My inner miser can't pass up a book sale.

The other problem is that I read a lot of series books (like, a lot of series books) and was ending up going a long time between being able to buy new volumes of series I read, so I got behind on a lot of my series. (I totally cracked before I went on vacation in September and stocked up on a bunch of series books.)

I will probably try this resolution again at some point in the future, but my resolution for 2017 is to focus on catching up on my various series.

You know, ever since I started reading M/M romance regularly, I haven't been reading nearly as much fic. I guess M/M romance novels push the same buttons for me that fic does.
