50 Book Challenge Update: Before anyone asks, I know comics can be ‘grown-up’ books.

I swear you guys, I really did mean to read more grown-up books this time!!  Oh well.  10-24 isn’t that bad of a ratio, counting books in progress.  I think I read more graphic novels last year. 

And I don’t say that to diss comics.  I’m trying to improve my speed-reading skills and catch up on a few classics, but I keep cheating on my reading-diet to read comics.  I can’t help it…I love x-men too much…
