Did about a book a week at a steady clip for the first part of the year, then read almost nothing during June/July, then very little again Sept/Oct/Nov as work got insanely busy. I basically gave up on logging progress during the second half of the year, so some of these (esp. the comics) are very much from memory. Most of the serializations equate to 2-3 skinny hardbound collections, which in time turn into 1-2 massive paperback collections. Say maybe 30 book-length reading units.
