What Are You Reading? January 2017 Edition

Based on my year end review, I'm making a few changes to how I list books here.  First of all, I was lazy for most of last year and just copied the title and primary author from Goodreads, which means last year's monthly lists didn't give credit to a lot of great co-authors, illustrators, pencillers, inkers, etc.  I corrected that on my top 40 list, but putting a whole bunch of authors in last name-first name order was awkward, so this year I'm going further on re-formatting.

Also, following up on my post with graphs from last year, I've been thinking about how the organization of my posts before preferenced certain formats above others.  I don't want to do that, so this year I'll be putting them in alphabetical order by format, which means comics (the format I read most this month) comes first.  I'm also adding a category-- visual work-- for primarily visual books that don't fall into the categories of comics or picture books, so that at the end of the year I can get a more accurate breakdown of text-based work compared to visual work. (Yes, I know I could go through last years books and recategorize, but I'm looking forward now, not back.)
