2016 is at an end and frankly I'm surprised how I finished the year.  Instead of just reading 54 or 55 books for the year, I finished with 58!  Personally I believe I completed 7 books this month to actually break my personal best total for books read.  My total for pages is officially 27606, which if you remember my November update I had already passed by old record.


As for 2017, well given the last year here on BookLikes I'll be doing more stuff on my Wordpress page than here.  If BookLikes makes a comeback then I might show up here more.  Anyways, have a Happy New Year...
