I've read one more book that I expected (my challenge was 35). Pretty good to me, even if some of these are really short ones. Also, I've been reading a lot of Argentinian literature, which I wasn't used to. So, it's been a good year to me when it's about books

I reached 90 I read quite a few anthologies, in comic form too and I listed some individually. I got a taste of video books which I loved.
At the end of the year I got more non-fiction, particularly on cooking so that was interesting. I don't think I've gone that far in researching food.

I tried a lot of subjects new to me, like certain cuisine and French poetry.

Really enjoyed my second¿ year. One of my favourite aspects was finding an author whose books I adored consistently!
