My reading was actually down a little in 2015. 224 books, 57,077 pages (plus two others I read as advance copies that aren’t counted here because they aren’t on Goodreads or anywhere else for me to mark down yet). That’s my lowest since 2010 (169 books, 53,367 pages). It’s lower than 2014 (303 books, 85, 839 pages), 2013 (313 books, 87,402 pages), 2012 (247 books, 73,388 pages), and 2011 (318 books, 89,777 pages).
Still, not bad. I’m still averaging around 200-300 books a year. I’m still doing a good amount of reading. A lot just happened in 2015. The process of selling one house and getting another ended up taking extended amounts of time over four months or so. I didn’t get anywhere near as much writing done as I should have, but I wrote one essayish book and edited a short story collection of mine for publication (Not Quite so Stories). Combine that with trying to get marketing and promotion worked together for the new short story collection and everything else I had going in 2015, and 224 books isn’t too bad.
Anyway, here are the books I read in 2015:
