2016 Reading Stats

My 2016 reading year resulted in some fun stats:

  • Books read:  88
  • Average per month:  7
  • Page count:  33,995
  • Average per month:  2,833
  • Total author count:  42
  • New to me authors:  20
  • Most books read by a single author: Darynda Jones for 8 books in her Grim Reaper series
  • Number of authors read once:  26

In 2017, I want to branch out and read more “new to me” type books, which was part of the development for January’s Challenge to read a life changing book.  I firmly believe that when one reads (or listens) to stories that are different than our own, we change our lives too.  I don’t have a number of books goal, but I do want the books to be thoughtful choices that will help me get outside my comfort zone of reading.

Bethany’s 2016 review is something to check out too, in case you missed it during the holidays.
