Year End Stats

2010 Summary:
I'm starting to be pretty proud of my blog-I'm still thinking about a custom blog design and debating what I want it to look like. I've grown in followers and I've followed a lot more blogs than I did at the start of the year. I can't wait to see what happens next year, to meet more bloggers, to participate in readalongs and challenges (although for the first half of the year, at least, I'm keeping them pretty minimal.)

Top 12 Books (Favorite Book from Each Month)

January: Candide by Voltaire (This was surprising to see-I don't remember picking that)
February: What the Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell
March: Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
April: House Rules by Jodi Picoult
May: Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
June: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
July: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
August: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
September: The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie
October: Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar
November: Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
December: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
The Year: Anne of Green Gables (I received the set of all eight Anne books this year for Christmas so hopefully I will be able to read them all this year)

Total Pages Read: 86,976
Total Books Read: 277
Average Length of Book: about 314 pages (pretty long)
Average Rating of Book: 3.4 stars

This is the first year that I tracked how many and what books I read; I've probably had similar reading habits before this but I cannot confirm this.  I can't wait for next year to compare!

Break-down by Genre
Non-fiction: 76
Classic: 14
YA/MG: 88
Mystery/Thriller: 44
Sci-Fi/Fantasy: 14
Romance: 16
Historical Fiction: 16
Short-Story Collection: 4
Other: 4

Other fun stats:
Number of Agatha Christies Read: 21 (a goodly number)
Number of Series started: 34 (some I finished)
Number of ebooks: 15 (will be much higher this year due to my nook)
Books I read specifically because of other bloggers: 37 (sometimes I can't remember so this may be lower than actual)
Number of people I got to read The Hunger Games: 4 (and three of them finished the trilogy!)

  1. Wow! And I thought I was doing well with 185 books read last year. 277 is truly impressive. Can't wait to see what you read in 2011. Happy New Year!
