2011 in Reading

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas @ 1:09

This year’s post is once again dedicated to Aunt Joan who cares about such things :).

2011 was a super busy year for us. Even busier than 2010, which I remember as being busy. I still managed to do some reading in my spare time; on buses, on airplanes, on trains. Statistically speaking it ranked well behind last year but I tried to read selectively and stick with winners. At least those available to me.

Total books finished: 143
Total pages read 31,836
Average length of a book: 223 pages
Number of non-English books: 6
Best month: January (28 books)
Slowest months: March-May (12 books total and only 2875 pages)

My page count average is a little higher than usual; the highest it has been since 2005 when it was 229. I compared my reading to the New York Times bestseller list again this year. Last year I had read 126 of 8,756 New York Times bestsellers. I am now up to 152, however the total number has mushroomed to 10518!
