2019 Reading Stats
Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share some of the statistics from the books I read in 2019. I know not everyone is interested in this kind of stuff, but I am, so I thought I’d share.
First of all, I read 110 books in 2019, including DNFs (Did Not Finish–books I didn’t finish and don’t plan on ever reading again) and DNF-For-Nows (Did Not Finish For Now–books I put down but plan to pick up again one day). I had 3 DNFs and 1 DNF-For-Now, which brings my total of completely read books to 106 for the year. I’m pretty proud of that number, since it’s the most books I’ve read in a year that I can remember, although I may have read more books than that in a year when I was a kid.
In years past, I have used a spreadsheet to keep track of the stats for books I read, but I’m not sure if I ever did a stats post. And in 2019, I didn’t use a spreadsheet, so I had to figure out the stats the old fashioned way, and because of this, I don’t have as many different cool stats as I would like for this post. However, for 2020, I’m using Crini’s awesome spreadsheet again, so this time next year I should have a post full of all kinds of fun stats. But for this post, I just have a few pie charts for some basic stats.
I mostly read Young Adult books, but this past year I ended up reading quite a few Adult books too, plus a few Middle Grade, Children, and 1 New Adult.
For many years, I couldn’t really get into audiobooks, but that changed in 2018. And in 2019, I read more audiobooks than physical books! I also read quite a few manga/graphic novels as well, with a couple ebooks.
Because I listened to so many audiobooks this year, and because I didn’t get an Audible account until the end of the year (because libraries are awesome and you can get TONS of audiobooks from your library), I read many more borrowed books in 2019 than books I already owned. I also barely bought any books in 2019, but I don’t have a pie chart for that.
So there they are, my (very few) statistics for my reading in 2019. I hope to have a much more thorough post next year. Do you have a post on your reading stats for last year? I’d love to see it! Leave a link in the comments below!
