End of Year Book Survey

This survey comes from The Perpetual Page-Turner, and I thought it would be a great way to share about what I read in 2014 rather than just listing favorites. I omitted some questions I didn’t feel were applicable to my personal reading habits, but if you’d like to see more responses, please follow the link above to the original post.
