What I Read in 2018

The other day, my local library system posted a list of its most popular books for 2018 and it got me thinking. How much reading (or listening) did I even do this year? I found myself doing more podcast and music listening on my commute and fell out of the habit of reading before bed. I was doing lots of consumption of books in the early part of the year but that fizzled out in the summer.

Total: 12 non-fiction books, 7 fiction (4 of which were re-reads)
