2018 Year In Review: Books

2018 was a busy year for me in a lot of new an unexpected ways (notice that my last post was way back in October 2017).

February, I didn’t get anything finished (but I did go to Mexico). May, things got busier at work, so my reading progress slowed down. By the end of the year, a lot of things were happening at the same time; work picked up again and I moved in with my girlfriend. Then the holidays started happening. It will be interesting to see what the year in Movies & TV look like next to this list.
