After a couple of years of doing this, I’ve decided to stop recording the graphic novels I read. The idea for the reading list has proved really succesful: it’s a useful record to jog my memory & it’s helped me lessen my habit of starting millions of books without finishing them. But recording graphic novels started to seem completely pointless.
