The end of the year has us going over what we’ve done in the past year. In keeping with a tradition I had when I owned a personal blog, below is my reading round-up.
Here is my 2012 reading round-up: This year I’ve read 231 books, up 3% from 2011. This does not include re-reads. I’ve read the following types of books: 191 mysteries, 15 thrillers, 11 suspense, 7 romantic suspense, 5 women fiction and 2 romance titles. I’ve discovered 40 new-to-me authors this year.
Because part of my day job is to looking at trends…I’ve been keeping track of the books I’ve read and purchased since 2006.
Below are my reading trends.
- The number of books I’ve read increased by 94%.
- The number of books I’ve purchased/own increased by 128% which I attribute to my e-readers and free books offered.
- The number of mysteries I’ve read increased by 290% which I attribute to the number of cozies I read.
Below is a graphical representation of my genre reading over the years.
So, what trends have you been tracking or watching out for?
