This year I managed to read 166 books, which is 25 more than 2017, and 24 more than in 2016. Each year I aim to read at least 100 books across a variety of genres — and with my propensity for genre novels, it’s a manageable target.

Some readers, for example, might include children’s picture books in their tally; I don’t.
