My #2019wrapup video is up! In which I demonstrate why I could never be a niche book reviewer. 😂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M-_KrgncZs

Finally, as part of my year end wrap up, here are the 30 books I read from the #1001books list in 2019. It‘s not quite as many as I was hoping for, but I did manage to read my #Reading1001 #TBRTakedown book every month, a few of the books of the month for that group, a few with Litsy readalongs, and a few random choices.

Scochrane26 I would try some of the list or other lists, but there‘s just some books I‘m never going to be willing to read. It‘s a great goal though, & I have worked on more classics. 2w

Daisey @Scochrane26 Thanks, and I completely understand. I will never get through all of these, and there are some I have no desire to read. I like that it gives me a wide variety of books to read and an interesting group of people with whom to discuss those books. 2w
CafeMom Great graphic. I wish I could do that. 2w
Daisey @CafeMom This is actually just a screenshot of my bookshelf on Goodreads in cover grid format on a square background. I lucked out that I read 30 books and it came out in even rows. 2w

Here are some more reading stats from my spreadsheet for 2019. Audiobooks counted for just under half of my books this year, and I used the library for almost 60% of my reading. The bar graph shows my book sources with purple for library, light blue for owned or free, and dark blue for borrowed from friends.

5 of 5: BOOKS BY PUBLICATION
So this spread remains largely consistent year-to-year. I do love reading new releases. But I would like to improve that pre-2000 number this year.

How was your reading year?

twohectobooks Love all of your stats! As a spreadsheet lover I‘ve been tracking more and more things like this as the years go by, I think publication year is something I‘m going to add in to my tracking as well. 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Averaging about 9-10% a year is great... it adds up over time, so I think you‘re doing great! 2w
thebluestocking @twohectobooks Thank you!! I‘d love to hear about the categories you track. I‘ve only tracked publication date for the last three years, but I think it‘s an interesting one to see. 💙 2w
thebluestocking @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Thank you for that perspective! You‘re right that all of it adds up over time. 💙 2w

4 of 5: BOOKS BY RATING
Exactly 50% of the books I read this year were 4-stars, which is actually kind of great. 4-star books are really good books, and I had a bump in 5-star reads as well.

(On Litsy, for me, books with 4 or 5 stars get a “pick,” books with 3 stars are “so-so,” and books with 1 or 2 stars get a “pan.” That means 65% of my 2019 books were picks!)

Ruthiella 65% is pretty good! 2w
thebluestocking @Ruthiella Not too shabby! 💙 2w

3 of 5: BOOKS BY GENRE
Two jumps in this category, in nonfiction and graphic novels. I am pleased with both developments. In fact, this year‘s ratio of genres is about exactly how I prefer it.

2 of 5: BOOKS BY OWNER
The trend of me buying less books continues. Actually, I haven‘t run the exact numbers on my buying, but I am absolutely leaning toward borrowing most books before considering buying them. (In 2015, 88% of the books I read I owned and that number has fallen each year since.)

LiteraryinLititz I totally support that trend! I also try to borrow from the library unless it‘s an author whose book I know I‘m going to want to own. 2w
thebluestocking @LiteraryinLititz Right? That‘s where I am now, but I used to want to own every book I read. Not enough room or monies! 🤷‍♀️💙 2w

Happy New Year, Littens! I love tracking my reading stats and comparing year to year. So, my next few posts are a look at my 2019 reading by the numbers.

#2019stats
1 of 5: BOOKS BY FORMAT
This year saw a huge jump in my audiobook consumption. I do not know why, other than I spend a lot of time in the car and have access to great audiobooks through the library. My ebook ratio was about the same, but the physical books dropped a ton.

Scochrane26 I think I read more audio this yr because of Libby & having apple CarPlay. I also found more books through Littens. 2w
thebluestocking @Scochrane26 Ooh. All three of those reasons apply to me as well! 💙 (edited) 2w
Lindy I love all your stats. Thanks for sharing! 😍 2w

thebluestocking @Lindy Thank you! I love that Litsy is a place for things like this. 💙 2w
speljamr Oh, I love this kind of stuff. What are you using to produce these graphs? 2w
Daisey I‘ve been scrolling through all your stats posts and there is a lot of info here! Great graphs and comparisons. I may need to add a couple columns to my tracking spreadsheet. I‘ve also seen my audio continually increasing the last few years. 2w
thebluestocking @speljamr Me too! I compile the data and make the pie charts in Excel. And then I compiled the collages in the PicsArt app. 💙 (edited) 2w
thebluestocking @Daisey Thank you!! I love tracking book stats too. I‘d love to hear about your categories. I tried adding setting to mine this year and did not keep up with it well. And it‘s interesting that audiobooks are up for you too; I‘m really interested to see if it continues this year for me. 💙 2w
Daisey My stats are pretty basic, with emphasis on book source and format, but I like the idea of tracking more about publication and authors. 2w
thebluestocking @Daisey Book source is one that I would like to add to my tracking this year. I usually try to put why I read it, but adding the source (and the cost) would be nice data to have. 💙 2w
