By the Numbers
One-Half of 2011

Total books read year-to-date: 44. (My goal for the year is 104 books. I'm 7 or 8 books behind right now, but I'm still hopeful that I'll reach the goal. I've got a weekend get-away and a week-long vacation coming up - during both of which I plan to do some serious reading. I'll also likely be working fewer hours during the next several months - which will free up some time for reading.)

Fiction: 37.
Non-fiction: 6.
Poetry: 1.

Audiobooks: 15.

On the Kindle: 2. (My Kindle was a Mother's Day gift. I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not, but I'm enjoying it very much!)

Books by male authors: 17.
Books by female authors: 26.
Anthologies: 1.

Published in 2011: 4.
Published prior to 1990: 1.

Historical fiction: 7.
Young adult: 24.
Juvenile: 4.

Read for my Teaching Through Literature class: 3.
Read with the "book lunch girls" (aka Natalie's Book Club): 4.
Read with my long-time book club: 4.

5-star rating: 1. (I adored The Invention of Hugo Cabret!)
4-star rating: 30.
3-star rating: 13.

What are your reading numbers for 2011 so far?


  1. I'm feeling like a total slacker!

  2. I did some number-crunching today too, but my numbers are only about half of yours :-).

  3. Great job on all the reading! What I want to know many books do you have marked as "to read" on Goodreads? And how do you decide what to read next? I'm guessing you must have like 300 books listed as "to read."
