evalangui: (once imagined)
[41 books] + [52 short stories = 10 books] + [6 poems] + [56 essays = 5 books] = [56 books]

Fanfic is clearly not included in this list, the numbers are insanely high [equivalent to 109 books of a 100.000 words each], although this year the scales a tipping a little bit more towards books thanks to me starting a degree on English literature. Next year, I clearly need to get reading in languages other than English!

Colours represent languages, numbers are for books, short-stories or fragments, essays, poems:
English, [34,49,6,0] Spanish [6,3,1,0] Catalan [1,1,0,0] Italian [0,1,0,0]
