2015 Reading Challenge(s) update

As I've mentioned before in past entries, every year I do a reading challenge. I set my goal for this year at 52, which is the same goal I had last year. In addition to just setting a number goal what I decided to to this year was to expand my horizons as well, I made a mental pact with myself that I would finally start reading comic books (other than Archie which I've been reading since I learned to read.). I also found a reading challenge checklist from PopSugar and thought I would give that a go as well. 

So how does my progress stand right now?

I've read my 52 books for the year, read the last one just tonight in fact, so anything else I read for the rest of the year is cake. Of the 52 books I've read this year, 22 have been comics.
