Currently reading: Combatants Will Be Dispatched! volume 4 (LN)

Total: 37 manga, 15 light novels.  About the same amount of light novels as December (14 then), but less manga (44 compared to 37). This month my ‘to buy’ list is significantly quieter than usual, so I’m hoping to use this free time to bring the pile of shame down a bit. ^^;

Speaking of here’s how the piles are looking….

 

I recently rearranged it a little to try and get some of the shorter reads out the way. I’ve already read 2 this month, so I’m hoping I can keep knocking them down!

Due to a mixture of Christmas and being on break I’ve managed to read a fair amount this month. 44 manga and 14 light novels compared to 39 and 5 last month. Pile of shame time!

The pile has sort of ballooned now, with the normal pile of shame, a Christmas pile and a work pile. Hopefully these will decrease a bit over the next month…

My yearly stats work out as: 397 manga, 152 light novels. Broken down across months as:

January 34/19
Feb 41/8
March 38/10
April 23/16
May 22/13
June 28/19
July 38/10
August 40/13
September 26/10
October 24/15
November 39/5
December 44/14

So it turns out I’ve been majorly slacking on reading light novels in November. I’m going to blame playing the new Pokémon game… I finished the month with 39 manga read and 5 light novels, compared to 24 manga last month and 15 light novels. Gotta up my game next month!

Pile of Shame:

So I made a deal with a good friend of mine that once she visited if I was still writing these reading logs I’d include pictures of the pile of shame instead of a list, so gonna start doing that this month!
