books, stats

(Nearly) All New January Stats

On Good Reads to-reads shelf (I don’t have copies of all of these!): 430

New books read this Month: 20

Books from the Library Book pile: 1

Books from the to-read pile: 6

Ebooks read: 7

Most read author: Donna Andrews

Books read this year: 20

Books bought: 8

Here we have the new look stats post.  I’ve pared back the categories – as I was finding it hard to work out what belonged in what category – and how to make it add up.  So I’m shifting the focus back to the actual physical pile – am I buying more books – than I’m reading from the backlog of real books.  But obviously this doesn’t include books that I’ve been sent for free.  So it still won’t add up – but the missing books from the total are either going to be books I bought and read straightaway or books I was sent for review.

But it’s the best way that I can come up with. The original purpose of the blog was to try and force me to deal with the backlog by buying less – so here we can keep track of whether I’m buying less.  As I said in last month’s stats, this is very much a work in progress, and I may still tweak it some more in the coming months.

As far as the New Year’s Resolutions go – No Classics and No Non Fiction – but I did read a library book.  Must Do Better.
