Since it is the new month of January (and it's barely a couple of days old)... As is my standard usage of my blog space at or near the beginning of the month, I present the listing of my December, 2015 reads.

I have to say that December, 2015 was a good month in terms of reading, somewhat slow at times and fast at others, with a wide variety of stuff read. Lots of re-reads, as can be seen from the list above, but hey, re-reads are a part of the experience. Nothing stood out to me among the reads of the month, though Perfume by Patrick Suskind was quite disturbing.

Overall, I managed to read 11 novels, 4 RPG and RPG products, 2 magazines, 0 comics, and 0 graphic novels in December. This brings the 2015 year end totals up to the following: 96 books, 38 RPGs and RPG products, 24 magazines, 424 comics, and 2 graphic novels. The reading for the year was up by 11 books, a nice improvement, though I wish I'd been able to read the magical 100 books for the year, but still, a good year's worth of reading, and once again, various aspects of my life had to do with this.
