Overall volumes read in 2010 was more than 2008 and 2009 (about 20 items more). Though I’m probably reading almost equal number of books/ graphic novels.

In 2010, of the 93 items, 42 (or 45%) were graphic novels. Hmm… surprised myself that I read slightly more books than graphic novels. Again, the choice for graphic novels stemmed from a need to just chill and read something less heavy-going.
