Every year, I challenge myself to read at least 50 books unrelated to work (or, since I’m a PhD student perpetually in school, unrelated to school). Some years I’m wildly successful, others…not so much.

In 2016, I divided my list into two parts: fiction and non-fiction, and graphic novels and comics. This division worked well for me, so I’m sticking with it for 2017.
