2014 Year In Review
So, here are some stats from 2014, in case you're into that kind of thing.
I wish I knew how to include graphs and fun things, but maybe I'll figure that out for next year.
I divided my books into Fiction, Non-fiction, and Graphic Novels.
Fiction - 55%
Non-fiction - 32%
Graphic Novels - 13%
I don't really feel one way or another about this. I didn't really have any goals about reading more or less non-fiction, so I feel like it's pretty good.
Then, I divided all the authors up by race.
White - 92%
Black - 2%
Asian - 3%
Hispanic - 1%
Native American - 1%
I really need to pay more attention to this one. Yikes.
Then, I divided them up by gender.
Women - 61%
Men - 39%
Since I try to #readwomen I'm okay with these slightly skewed numbers.
Now, it's by format.
Print - 88%
Audio - 11%
eBook - 1%
I have a ton of eBooks, I need to get some of those read. But hey! I almost read one audiobook a month. That's pretty good. That's 11 books more for my numbers.
Now, here is the break-down for the books that were in genres. Not every book went into this category, so it won't add up to 100%.
Mystery - 10%
Young Adult - 23%
Science Fiction - 1%
Fantasy - 3%
Short Stories - 1%
Middle Grade - 1%
Childrens - 4%
And a few more fun stats I decided to tally up.
Books about Books and Reading - 15%
Rereads - 4%
Jane Austen-related Books - 6%
I really thought I read more books related to Jane Austen than that, but I'm beginning to run out of options.
And now, my Goodreads rating breakdown:
5 Stars - 8%
4 Stars - 38%
3 Stars - 47%
2 Stars - 4%
1 Stars - 3%
This tells me I need to read more books that are better than meh. 3 stars is sort of "it was good enough". I should aim for more 5 Star books and stop wasting time on okay books. I want more from my reading.
