Overall, I read 305 books that I logged in 2019. I read another set of books for my duties as a member of the Over the Rainbow Booklist Committee but since I don't publicly rate those, I didn't find it useful to include them in the log if I planned to share it, which you know I did.
Some celebrities think end of year booklists are bullshit, but I persist. Sharing what I read is the greatest joy in my life, but I also have goals that I like to see coming to fruition through carefully kept data. (Those who know Gallup strengths, and know mine, would not be shocked.)
So the first piece of data is pretty simple, fiction vs. non-fiction. I'm not surprised that fiction is almost 80% but my book club and some reading challenges keep me dipping into non-fiction.
The format is at just a little over 50% digital (and by digital, Book Riot means eBook; my audiobook listening is exclusively digital as well, but I only used "audio" for them.) I think the number of eBooks I read has a lot to do with the number of ARCs I read, since most of them are digital. I'm actually pleased that I read 10% audio, as I wouldn't have thought it was that high.
Page number wise, I'm guilty, I will read four 200-300 page books before I'll tackle the 400+ page book. I wish I could get past this feeling! That said I did read a few mighty tomes this year, just not a lot in comparison.
So it's working well to track this information. Which categories do you think I should track that I haven't? What do you track, and how?
