Book voyage

In the past month, I have read 17 books, 52 books in 2017. They include:

The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
Aya series #1 by Marguerite Abouet and Clement Oubrerie
The Corpse Walker: Real Life Stories, China from the Bottom Up by Liao Yiwu
Big Mushy Happy Lump by Sarah Andersen
Aya of Yop City by Marguerite Abouet and Clement Oubrerie
Aya: The Secrets Come Out by Marguerite Abouet
Good Riddance: An Illustrated Memoir of Divorce by Cynthia Copeland
Lost in Translation: An Illustrated Compendium of Untranslatable Words from Around the World by Ella Frances Sanders
Soppy by Philippa Rice
The Illustrated Book of Sayings: Curious Expressions from Around the World by Ella Frances Sanders 
Born to Write: the Remarkable of Six Famous Authors by Charis Cotter
Seconds by Bryan Lee O'Malley
Displacement: a Travelogue by Lucy Knisley
Aya: Love in Yop City by Marguerite Abouet and Clement Oubrerie
Amy: A Life Through the Lens by Darren Bloom
Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi
Over Easy by Mimi Pond

I recommend all of these books. This streak has been engrossing. It's been some years since I've read this quantity of books in a short period. Since I became fascinated by graphic novels, it has invigorated my reading. The habit had become slightly languorous. No longer.
