 I made a conscious effort this year to read more.

I am still having fallow weeks of not reading a single page followed by weeks in which I devour more than three hundred pages and will need to discipline myself to be more consistent next year.

Being more into audio books for last two years, I switched back to ebooks at the start of this year.

Les Misérables is one book which is going to stay with me forever. These quotes and reviews will give you a flavor of it.
