Day 31 #MayStats - Read 109 Books of 200 Goal

Looking forward to June - Piranha, Sovereign, Gilead, Drawing of the Three and An American Marriage

#maystats #readingresolutions @Jess7

ReadZenRites Looks like you‘re going to meet your goal 👍🏻🎉 12mo
Andrew65 You only need to read 13 books a month to achieve this target. I think you will be closer to 240 - 250. (edited) 12mo

April was a weird reading month. I don‘t feel like I accomplished much. Mostly because I‘m trying hard to resist picking up another book besides Otherland. I‘m making progress, but it is slow going!

How‘s everyone doing on their #MountTBR?

I read 6 books total and I‘m counting 4 as TBRs. I‘m cheating, I suppose with A Wizard of Earthsea, because I‘ve read it before. But I‘ve been waiting forever till I could read it to my son, and we did it!

Birdsong28 On book 8/20 😀📚📖 13mo
AnneCecilie 9/21 comes from my tbr, and is not a reread. May will be a stronger month for me with two buddy reads from my tbr. 13mo
Pamwurtzler I read 2 from my TBR in April & just started another. 13mo

DivaDiane @Bostonmomx2 😂 LOL. Maybe you need to start limiting library books while you try to work on your MountTBR? 13mo

Being nerdy tonight, checking out my 2017 stats. All in all, a great year of reading. For 2018 I'd like to read more books from my own shelves, and increase the diversity of authors I choose, but in general I'm quite happy with how the past year broke down.

I just did a breakdown of my 2017 reads and thought I‘d share. It was a fantastic year! I finally (and reluctantly) tried my first audiobook in July, but found that I really like them. 🎧👏🏻 #yearendstats

Redwritinghood Nice! 👏👏👏👏 1y
Sills Wow this is impressive! 1y
merelybookish Good work! Audiobooks do help one read more, I think. 1y

mdhughes72 I can‘t believe that with all the reading you do, you only recently picked up audio. I spent a lovely weekend with Nora Ephron, my all time favorite who thankfully narrated her own work — at least the most recent stuff. 1y
Eggs 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 1y
Kalalalatja What a year! And it is very impressive you read 37 audiobooks if you only started in June 😱👏😄 1y
Cortg Fantastic! I just started audiobooks a couple years ago. Most I really like but some disappoint. I‘m getting the hang of what types of books to listen to vs reading with my eyeballs. 1y
britt_brooke @merelybookish Definitely agree. Because I listen to an audiobook when I‘m doing laundry or at the gym, etc. 1y
britt_brooke @mdhughes72 I‘m one of those skeptics who always thought audio wasn‘t really reading ... UNTIL I finally tried it and got used to listening. Now I have to have one going for gym time, doing laundry, etc. I also read significantly less before Litsy, lol! 1y
britt_brooke @Cortg It definitely takes some getting used to. I started with memoirs I‘d already read in print, just to be sure I could properly pay attention. I mostly listen to nonfiction. I‘m also learning that narrators can make or break an audio book! 1y
britt_brooke @Redwritinghood @Sills @Eggs Thanks!! ☺️ I give lots of credit to Litsy. Before this awesome place, I read significantly less than I do now.. 1y
britt_brooke @Kalalalatja Thanks! ☺️ I pop on an audiobook pretty much anytime my sons aren‘t right in my face 😆 - doing never-ending laundry, cooking, exercising. I‘ve kind of become obsessed! 🤓 1y
melbeautyandbooks @britt_brooke - You are so right about the narrator! I use the sample feature on audible so I don‘t end up with someone I can‘t stand to listen to. 1y
britt_brooke @melbeautyandbooks I‘ve been using that now, too. Super helpful! So far, I know I‘m not a fan of Scott Brick. 1y
melbeautyandbooks @britt_brooke He is one that people love or hate. 1y
britt_brooke @melbeautyandbooks That‘s what I‘ve heard. 1y
4ravens I was reluctant to listen to audiobooks, but I'm now travelling a bit for work and often drive long distances on my own, so I think I need to give them a go 😊 1y
Reviewsbylola Nice! 1y
britt_brooke @4ravens I was very reluctant, but it‘s definitely worth a try. Especially if you can borrow through your library system. I borrow them from Overdrive all the time. I have an Audible account now, too, but it‘s $15/month. 1y
4ravens Thanks @britt_brooke I'll look into what the library has. I was thinking of getting the one month trial from audible 1y
britt_brooke @4ravens I did the one month trial with Audible then went to cancel and they gave me a deal to sign up for 3 months for 7.49/month. 😁 They roped me in! I think next month, I go to the reg $15/month, but I‘ve found it‘s worth it. 1y
4ravens @britt_brooke I signed up for overdrive and another service our library has but everything I want is on loan for months 😕 I can see audible in my future 😂 1y
britt_brooke @4ravens Oh no, lol! 1y

My #bookishresolution for 2017 is to continue working on reading more diversely and to continue reading more translations and nonfiction! I'm actually pretty happy with my 2016 stats and hoping to up my spreadsheet game to have more stats for next year 🤓 I'm pretty confident that Litsy will help me with these goals 😁

prowlix And I now can't find who shared the amazing spreadsheet from Let's Read on YouTube but thanks you! It make me so very happy! 2y
