Year End Number Crunch 2012

I saw this post on my friend Suey’s blog. I thought it was a great idea and I decided to do it myself. (Just don’t compare her list to mine. I don’t measure up in the least.)

Goodreads Stats 2012

Observations

  • I didn’t read nearly as many books as I wanted to.
  • Sadly, I was 51 pages off from reading 10,000 pages this year.
  • This year was definitely a reread year.
  • Normally, I don’t give out mostly 5 stars. Only 3 new books received 5 stars; the rest were rereads.
  • I didn’t go out of my comfort zone much this year.
  • I didn’t listen to any audiobooks.
  • I read two non-fiction books?! Wow!
  • I read two classics like I wanted to. It’s about the only goal I accomplished reading-wise this year.
  • I’m glad I finally read Pride and Prejudice!
  • I reread The Book of Mormon and got halfway through The Old Testament.
What about you? What have you observed about your reading habits this past year?
