Book Stats: 2010

Welcome to 2010 edition of "Liz's Reading Habits." If you find it boring that's okay and you can blame Matthew for getting me interested in stats in the first place. This is the third year that I have kept track of my reading habits. These are the rules:

  • For a book to count it had to be read cover to cover and finished in that year.

  • If a book was started in 2008 but finished in 2009 it counts as a 2009 book.

  • "Reading" has also come to include listening to audio books.

  • Here are the results:

    Total Books Read:
    2010 -72 books (including audio books, 48 without)
    2009 -72 books (including audio books, 63 without)
    2008 -66 books

    Non-Fiction Books Read:
    2010 -14 books
    2009 -15 books
    2008 -13 books

    Fiction Books Read:
    2010 -58 books
    2009 -57 books
    2008 -53 books

    2010 Stats:
    Audio Books Listened To -24 books
