With June almost coming to a close, I thought what better time than now to see where I am with regard to reading stats for the year. As mentioned previously, I don’t live and die by stats, but it’s a fun way to see where the trends are going, bookshelf-wise.
Total number of books read by July: 21 (way less than usual due to life in general, but that’s ok.)
Fiction/Non-Fiction: 11 fiction / 15 non-fiction.
Reading more diversely: 12 POC authors. (43% of total. Not bad, but would like to move this up to 50% by the end of the year, just as a goal.)
Other: 7 plays, 1 short story collection, 1 graphic novel.
Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 15 library books and 10 owned books.
Total number of pages read so far this year: 6,687 (av: 248 per book)
Here’s to more happy reading!
The reading appears to be going well! Hope the second half of the years continues on the good trend!
Thanks, Stefanie… You too!
