I read 69 books in 2020!
More books* than ever before**!
* I read quite a few shorter books and graphic novels/comic collections. According to Goodreads I read 15,841 pages. This is the second most behind 2013 when I read 17,121, but only 63 books. That year included A Storm of Swords as well as my first voracious trip to the Las Vegas casino buffet of magic-related books.
** This is based on Goodreads stats, which go back to 2010. I probably had years in college when I read more books. Those were considerably before 2010.
Average rating: 3.4 (out of 5)
I don’t publish my ratings for individual books. If I liked a book well enough but it doesn’t knock my cozy socks off, it gets three stars.
Fiction/Nonfiction: 74% / 26%
I’m guessing that if I were able to break this down by pages read, the percentages would be closer. My goal for next year is at least 30% nonfiction. (Last year: 45% nonfiction)
14% were rereads.
51% of the books I read were from the library—the vast majority of those were from various online libraries.
72% of the books I read were in some ebook form.
4% were audio books.
The biggest change this year is that I stopped reading and reviewing ARCs. I had threatened to for a few years, but I finally stopped in February 2020. I really wasn’t feeling very inspired to review books and no longer wanted the requirement to do so.
