Year-end Reading Round-up, 2010 edition

Counting down from last year's 3581 books left to read, I've got "only" 3381 more books to enjoy. What did I think about books I've read this past year? For lists, go here, here, here and here.

And here's the 2010 reading analysis (2000 numbers in parens):

number of books read in 2009: 200 (192)
best month: July/37 (March/35)
worst month: September/7 (September/7)
average read per month: 16.6 (16)
adult fiction as percentage of total: 14.5  (17)
children's/YA fiction as percentage of total: 43 (51)
mystery as percentage of total: 11.5 (5)
Advance Readers Copies: 106 (115)
books read that were published in 2010: 125
books that will be published in 2011: 10

Five star reviews: 20 (12)
One star reviews: 6 (10)
(don't know if this means I've gone soft, or if there was more "good stuff" this year)

200 books. A nice, neat, tidy number, but wholly unexpected. I'll be very surprised to repeat that feat in 2011. And since I added 184 books, Mt. Bookpile only shrank by a mere 16, leaving my goal of <300 for next year.

I haven't counted yet for last year, but I've added so many books to my TBR list today that I'm feeling overwhelmed --in a good way.
