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?
