#2019WrapUp #2019Reads #2019Stats
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.

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?
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!)
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.)
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.
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.
