The 2019 Reading Thread — The December “’Zat You, Santa Claus” Edition

It’s the most wonderful time of the year once again. Bells will be ringing as we try desperately to keep up with our reading. So get in your four-horse open sleigh, and get to your LCS before Santa Claus comes to town!

The Rules
Log everything you've read this year. Just edit your existing post or you (and we) will get confused trying to keep up. At the end of each month, I'll start a new thread and you can pick a "winner" from your favorite books. You can focus on just trades, or just write about the good stuff you've read.

    It's been a while but I had zero reportable reads and in November I had none. I had a few singles, but I owned the entire storyline so I couldn't say I completed a read.


    I want to say I'm sorry. Also my piles are looking like murd

    Edited 4x for clarification
