I love that Goodreads puts together these stats for you at the end of the year (if you’ve done the reading challenging). I love looking back at them year over year. Here’re my stats for 2017.
When I looked back at 2015-2017, I saw some interesting things:
- The number of books I’ve read has gone up over the years, well mostly. (2014: 97 books, 2015: 120 books, 2016: 163 books, 2017: 154 books)
- But the length of the books I’m reading is going down. (2014: 333 pages, 2015: 319 pages, 2016: 314 pages, 2017: 298 pages)
- Perhaps it’s because I keep setting my Goodreads goal higher? Because of this possibility, I only set my goal for 2018 at 120 books.
- I am very consistent in my book ratings. My average rating has held steady for the last 4 years. (2014: 3.5 stars, 2015: 3.5 stars, 2016: 3.6 stars, 2017: 3.5 stars)
Did you do the Goodreads Challenge? What did your year in books look like?
