2016 was my first full calendar year working full time. I knew I'd be busy so I set my goal a little lower, and I still didn't quite make it. I did find some great books though! And almost everything I read was from the library =) I also got into Audio Books in 2016 which definitely helped me hit 45 books. These are not necessarily books published in 2016, just books I read that year.
