I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.

So it looks like I was right: I hit between 20 and 30 graphic novels.   I also really enjoyed compiling this list.   If you guys don't want to see them, I'll continue for myself, and in a Pages document.  If you guys would like to see this continue, there are two options: let me know, or say nothing.  (I'll take silence as, at the very least, acceptance.)


I was also correct in that Sunday's are the days when I get the most reading done.  I think those are gonna be, like, my Shabbat.   The day of rest.  The day when I get the majority of my reading done. 


I'm like halfway through a couple volumes, mostly Loki, so I foresee another strong Sunday.  I'll probably finish close to seven graphic novels again, thus giving me a strong reading week in general.   See you guys tomorrow.   And yes, while this blog is mostly for me, I wold also like to make it a good reading experience for my friends.   So, like I said, if this is going to get tired, let me know.  I'm very analytical, and I mostly turn that inwards because other people tend to get annoyed if I overanalyze them.   So, I'm doing this for myself.  

I don't foresee this as a way to expand my reading.  I do try to mix it up a little, but I'm also very obsessive and that goes hand in hand with my reading phases.  I'm in a heavy Marvel/comics phase, and I don't see that ending anytime soon.  I'm absolutely hooked on their subscription reading service!  (And I'm still not crazy-crazy about their reader, but it's serviceable, and I've already read the subscription fee's worth of comics - at least.   It's a damn good deal!)
