Reading Stats

Now that we’re closing in on the middle of July, lots of book bloggers are reviewing their 2008 statistics, and I didn’t want to be left out of the fun [via Bookgirl].

  • Books read: 14 (which makes me feel woefully inadequate next to Bookgirl’s 48)
  • Mysteries: 1
  • Fiction: 12
  • Books by women: 8
  • Library copies: 1
  • Books I have, will, or might teach this year: 4
  • Books I didn’t like: 1
  • YA books: 2
  • Classics: 5
  • Online (DailyLit): 1
  • New-to-me authors: 9
  • Books published this year: 2
  • Average Goodreads rating (out of 5 stars): 4.21

I am a little surprised about the high rating.  My overall Goodreads rating is 4.36.  I think that’s because I rarely finish I book I don’t like, and I don’t review or rate books I don’t finish.  Therefore, all of the books I’ve read this year (with one exception) received 4 or 5 stars.

What are some of your reading stats for this year?

One thought on “Reading Stats

  1. Oh no, don't feel behind. I've seen some book bloggers mention that they are already at 100 – Yikes! 🙂

    You know my book dislikes would probably be a very low number too. If it's a book I really don't like then I'm just not going to finish it.

    Can't wait to read your review of The Lace Reader by the way!
