2010 reading analysis

I'm a word AND a numbers girl.
  • Total # of Books Started and Finished = 46 read (27% increase from 2009) and 14 audio for a GRAND TOTAL of 60 - Wahoo!!!!
  • Average # of Books Read Per Month = 3.83 (read) or 5 (read/listened to)
  • Best Reading Month = March (9)
  • Worst Reading Month = tie among January, September, and November (3 each)
  • Total Pages Read This Year = 18,263 (15.6% increase from 2009)
  • Average Pages Per Book = 397
  • Average Pages Read Per Day = 50 (16% increase from 2009)
  • Average Pages Read Per Month = 1,522 (16% increase from 2009)
  • Total # of Fiction Books Read = 36 read and 14 listened to
  • Total # of Nonfiction Books Read = 10 read
  • Total # of Classics = 12 (also included in the fiction tally)
  • Total # of Books Reread = 4
  • Total # of Chunksters (450+ pages) Read =15 (1 fewer than last year, but I did read some tomes: War and Peace and Gone with the Wind.)
  • FAVORITE read of 2010: Hands down, Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  • Lesson learned: Don't put an entire series on my reading goals for the year. I made that mistake twice this year (Percy Jackson and Lord of the Rings) and it nearly killed me each time.
I already have my spreadsheet going for 2011!
