This doesn’t include all of the books I read as a freelance editor, which was more than 20. It also doesn’t include all the short pieces I read. I’m on the internet all day and work in a newspaper office, so I am reading short articles all day long. The number of short works I read in a year would be impossible to count.

Surprisingly, I was able to get quite a bit of writing done as well. I finished a 100K+ novel, some short stories, tons of blog posts, and got started on a few more novels.

So how many books did you read in 2015? Let me know in the comments!
