It's no secret that graphic novels aren't my genre of choice. However, this year I made a short list of some reading goals I wanted to work on. One of them is increasing the number of graphic novels I read. My plan is to read one graphic novel each month. Of course, if I want to read more than that, I can, but reading one a month is a lot more than I was reading before, and by the end of the year, I'll have a dozen graphic novels I can recommend to my students (which is an unlikely scenario since they are all about graphic novels and recommend them to me instead of the other way around).
