Reading Roundup 2014

In the spirit of year-end roundups, here's what my reading looked like in 2014.

I read 46 books, just one less than the previous record of 47 in 2008. But I read more pages over all - 14136 - which is a new high score for me. The read a lot of comic books this year so I think I cheated a little bit. Comic books are easier to read than regular books.

About 50% of the reading was comics books, followed by 25% non-fiction. The rest was mostly science fiction. There was less variety in my reading this year compared to last year. I think I might continue this trend into 2015 although I'd like to read more non-fiction in the coming year.



The longest book I read was Ramchandra Guha's India After Gandhi. It was a long and difficult read but well worth the effort. Other memorable books were Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and The Cathedral and the Bazaar by Eric S. Raymond.

All in all, a satisfying year, reading-wise.
