Choice of Best Book Everyone Should be Reading

Of the 284 books I read this year. I was more comfortable this year with my reading than any other I can think of. I only DNFed 4 books. Longest book I read was over 15 hundred pages. Shortest book was 232 pages. Of the 284 books, that is meaning book form, that is not counting Novella's. I read 81 novellas this year. So 284 books plus 81 novellas, 47 Poetry Books, 17 Graphic Novels, Grand Total 429 reads, a great amount of reading.

Most of my books that I read this year was E-Book form. I spent an average of 0.99 cents to 9.99 on each eBook. I am also a subscriber to Kindle Unlimited through Amazon and so I read through that process also.
