- A little better for non-fiction reading, but still pathetic.
- I thought I did a lot better regarding classics, but I guess not.
- It appears SF/Fantasy in the YA genre is taking over my reading!!!
- My ARC reading and reviews doubled from last year.
- The historical fiction category is also suffering! Wow I see such a change from my pre-blogging numbers!
- I'm happy that I'm reading so many books that I already own (though many of those books are acquired throughout the year!) but sad to see my library usage down at the same time.
- A few years ago my men vs. women authors was dead even. That appears to be changing too!
- I think I read a lot of Big Fat Books this year... page numbers seem to be up!
- I'm surprised at the low "literary fiction" number. Must fix that too!
Ah, fun. I love crunching the numbers. Have you crunched yours yet? How did they turn out?
