By the Numbers
Three-Quarters of 2010

Total books read year-to-date: 59. (I read twenty-five of those - nearly half - after July 1. That makes me hopeful that I can at least exceed the numbers of the past three years - 83 books in 2009, 80 books in 2008, and 76 books in 2007 - if I cannot meet my goal of 104 books for the year.)

Fiction: 52.
Non-fiction: 7.

Historical fiction: 13.

Published in 2010: 16.
Published prior to 1990: 6.

Young adult: 27.
Juvenile: 6.

Read with the fifth grade book group: 7.
Read with the "book lunch girls": 8.
Read with my book club: 5.
Read with the Book Buddies: 3.

5-star rating: 6.
(Those were The Happiness Project, Bluebird: Women and the New Psychology of Happiness, To Kill a Mockingbird, Slob, A Northern Light, and Harriet the Spy.)
4-star rating: 30.
3-star rating: 21.
2-star rating: 2.

What are your reading numbers for 2010 so far?


  1. I'm at 31...better than I would have guessed until I counted up. I have about 31 more sitting here on my shelf, waiting for some one-on-one time. But today, I will be with family in the canyon--glorious fall!

  2. I think you did very well, Alison!
