Thematically, this year’s reading list consists of technology and design books and graphic novels — no change there from previous years — with some current events/geopolitics thrown in for good measure. I expect that particular trend to continue into the New Year based on the stacks of unread books laying around.
So that’s what my 2018 looked like! If you’d like to follow my progress in the New Year, you can find me on Goodreads.
