Counting down from last year's 3952 books left to read, I've got 3773 more books enjoy. 329 of them are sitting on Mt. Bookpile as I type!
What did I think about books I've read this past year? For lists, go here, here, here and here.
And here's the 2008 reading analysis (2007 numbers in parens):
number of books read in 2008: 180 (120)
best month: July - 29
worst month: April - 5
average read per month: 15 (10)
adult fiction as percentage of total: 6 (16)
children's/YA fiction as percentage of total: 65 (44)
mystery as percentage of total: 13 (25)
books read that were published in 2008: 77
180 books... not as good as Jandys, perhaps, but not shabby either. The sad thing is that I also added 131 to Mt. Bookpile. Oh well, there's always 2009!
