Hello, Bloggers!  It is time to talk about the past month…and the year.  December was a great month of reading, with a total of seventeen books.  To be fair, though, two were novellas.

Here are some other totals:

167 BOOKS READ IN 2016:

100 of those were purchased books that I read for the Read the Books You Buy Challenge: books I bought between June 2015-December 2016

40 of the books were review books

27 books were a mix of older books that I had purchased
