(Wheeee!)
I'll try again, but no promises...

Post title explained
"Book" is overused with my entries in this thread. A book often contains one story, sometimes multiple ones. Anthologies, for example. A comic isn't a book, yet I would count it here. Pulp fiction, which I read as well, are not really books, not even novellas.

Goals
- Read 6 books
...
Yeah, that's it.

Explanation
Normal Book
Short Story
Pulp Fiction (64 pages, cheap)
Comic, Graphic Novel
[STRIKE]Tried it, but didn't read it to the end[/STRIKE]

Now Reading

My initial goal this year was 30, but I knocked it down to 20 about mid-year after six months of reading very little. And things were going so great these last few years (by my standards). FU, 2020!
