I was largely down in my reading this year. For the first time ever, I didn't read enough nonfiction (just 6 books) to even do a year end ranking, but my comics and graphic novels are up from last year. Stay tuned for my year end rankings of long fiction, picture books, and short stories coming up in the next few days.
