kafkaesquely: (Bookish mood)
I always used to keep a list with all the books I had read in a year. Earlier it was on internet boards with some friends and the one who read the most would win (?). The winner was always this girl who read really fast and also read a lot of manga. When I lost contact with most of them I stopped doing the reading list, but when I found about Goodreads I decided to start again (time gap: about a year). 
This January I started one of those Goodreads reading challenge. My goal was 50 books - but I'm cheating. I've been reading many comic books lately, but keeping the count with single issues (instead of big albums as it should be done). I keep telling myself that I will change it when I surpass my goal, but let's be real: I won't do it. Still, here's my reading list for this 2015. 

  1. Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov.
  2. Slaughterhouse 5, Kurt Vonnegut
  3. The Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger
  4. The Slow Regard of Silent Things, Patrick Rothfuss
  5. Breakfast at Tiffanys and other tales, Truman Capote
  6. The SCUM Manifesto, Valerie Solanas
  7. Cat's Craddle, Kurt Vonnegut
  8. A journalist's five senses, Ryszard Kapuscinski
  9. A room of one's own, Virginia Woolf
  1. Bitch Planet, Kelly Sue Deconnick and Valentino de Landro. Issues 1, 2, 3, 4
  2. Vapor, Max
  3. Lumberjanes, Noelle Stevenson. Issues 1, 2, 3, 4
  4. Sex Criminals, Mark Fraction and . Isues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
  5. Los cuentos de la Era de Cobra 2: Revolución, Enrique Fernández.
  6. Paying for it, Chester Brown.
  7. Playlove: Where the streets have no name, Miguel Ángel Martín 
  8. Nijigahara Holograph, Inio Asano
  9. Mad Max Fury Road: Furiosa #1, George Miller
  10. Ghost World, Daniel Clowes
  11. Pretty Deadly, Kelly Sue Deconnick and Emma Ríos. Issues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
  12. Ink for Beginners - A comic book guide to getting tattooed. Kate Leth.
  13. Giant Days. Issues, John Allison. Issues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
  14. Drinking at the movies, Julia Wertz
  15. Gotta Have 'em: portraits of women. Robert Crumb.
  16. Robert Crumb's anthology. Issue 13
To me this list is kind of depressing, right? I should read more books than comic books (not saying comic books aren't cool). That might be my new year goal. 

As for this list, I hope I'll keep it updated until December 31st, and then I might even write something about my (extremely slow) reading process. Nope, I won't link my Goodreads profile.
