Thanks again everyone for all your nice comments on the new blog look. Now to get back to all the book talk. I feel so behind. I still need to talk about Christmas gifts received (books are involved) and books read over my blog break. One step at a time I guess. So first, the Stats. Here’s my year in review:
- Total Books Read in 2006: 91
- Books by Women: 64
- Books by Men: 27
- Fiction: 42
- Mystery: 40
- Classics: 2
- Non-fiction: 3
- Graphic Novels: 3
- Poetry: 1
Well, there are no big surprises. I know I tend to read more books written by women (not a planned choice but it just happens) and I also read a lot of mysteries. If you missed the post on my favorite reads of 2006 you can find it here.
As to my resolutions, first off I would love to make a bigger dent into my stacks of unread books. I said that last year too but this year I will track where my books read come from. Hopefully that will help me remember to read more from my stacks and borrow less from the library.
Classics only two read? I’m hoping that the Winter Classics Challenge will help with this number as I’d really like to read at least five classics this year (I said the same thing last year!). Also, can someone come up with a non-fiction challenge too? I really would like to read at least five non-fiction books this year. I do read a lot of poems throughout the year but this year I’d like to be more focused and read at least two poetry collections.
No big resolutions really and next year stats will probably look the same but ultimately I hope it’s a year filled with lots of good reads.
