This past year was the first time I kept track of every book I read as well as rating them. I won’t list every book I read in 2007 here, but if you are interested you can check the “Books Read in 2007” tab above. I will list some statistics for the year though. As I have written before, even though I have never before tracked my reading I know that I read much more than ever before. So here are the stats:
- 74 books read
- For a total of 25,843 pages (give or take a hundred or so because books don’t usually start on page 1)
- 349.2 pages per book on average
- 3.64 average rating
- 11 non-fiction, 23 sff, and 40 general fiction
- 59 male authors/15 female authors
I think that’s pretty much every statistic that could be considered even remotely interesting. I don’t really have any goals set for 2008 other than that I would like to match my page total from 2007. I decided on page total instead of number of books because many of the books I plan on reading this year are longer than last years. However, I will likely miss my page total from this past year because of my decision to take notes while reading non-fiction books which slows me down quite a bit, it will also be slow going because many of my non-fiction reads will be about physics.
