This year’s post is again once again dedicated to Aunt Joan who cares about such things .
2012 was a super duper busy year for us. Even busier than 2011, which I remember as being busier than 2010. Are you sensing a trend here? I still managed to do some reading in my spare time; on buses, on airplanes. Statistically speaking it wasn’t much better than last year but again I tried to read selectively and stick with winners.
Total books finished: 155
Total pages read 28,107
Average length of a book: 181 pages
Number of non-English books: 7
Best month: January (29 books)
Slowest months: Nov-Dec (3 books each and only 618 pages total)
I compared my reading to the New York Times bestseller list again this year. Last year I had read 152 of 10,518 New York Times bestsellers. I am now up to 160, however the total number has increased to 10,617 which means they added 99 books last year and I added 8!
