I saw this featured on Books Please earlier this week and it looks like a good way to summarise the first six months of reading of the year. This meme originates from Jo at The Book Jotter. The aim is to sort your reads into six categories – you can choose from the ones Jo suggests or come up with your own. The same book can obviously feature in more than one category.
