First Quarter Reading Stats

4 Apr

This year I’ve decided to become more organised with my reading and i wanted to do a round up every three months to see how my reading is going, this is purely for my own interest, not to try and force myself to read more!

  • From the begining of January to the end of March i read 25 books. Of these, 18 were fiction and 7 were non-fiction. This has actually surprised me as i didnt think i read all that much non-fiction.
  • I have read several different genres this year already. 7 Memoirs, 4 Chick lit, 2 classics, 8 Young Adult, 1 fantasy and 1 literary fiction.
  • I have read 15 books on my kindle and 10 paper books, i need to read more paper books in the next quarter.
  • I have read 8 books that i brought in 2010, 6 from 2011 and 10 from 2012. I need to read more from 2010.
  • The eight books from 2010 were off the shelf. Really this is not good enough, I’m not going to reduce my TBR like that!
  • I read 3 books for the reading circle over the 3 months.
  • For my reading challenges this is my progress

    Whoa, I’m impressed! I wish I could read that many books in such a short space of time! 🙂

    That is quite impressive! I wonder how my stats would break down. I think I read far too many “new” books instead of my existing TBRs…Excellent job! Good luck with the 2nd quarter. 🙂

        I do! – I am participating in the A-Z challenge right now, so I am doing a lot of blogging about random, slightly related to books things. Life will resume in May 🙂
