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! 👏👏👏👏 5y
Sills Wow this is impressive! 5y
merelybookish Good work! Audiobooks do help one read more, I think. 5y

DocBrown 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. 5y
Eggs 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 5y
Kalalalatja What a year! And it is very impressive you read 37 audiobooks if you only started in June 😱👏😄 5y
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. 5y
britt_brooke @merelybookish Definitely agree. Because I listen to an audiobook when I‘m doing laundry or at the gym, etc. 5y
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! 5y
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! 5y
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.. 5y
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! 🤓 5y
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. 5y
britt_brooke @melbeautyandbooks I‘ve been using that now, too. Super helpful! So far, I know I‘m not a fan of Scott Brick. 5y
melbeautyandbooks @britt_brooke He is one that people love or hate. 5y
britt_brooke @melbeautyandbooks That‘s what I‘ve heard. 5y
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 😊 5y
Reviewsbylola Nice! 5y
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. 5y
4ravens Thanks @britt_brooke I'll look into what the library has. I was thinking of getting the one month trial from audible 5y
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. 5y
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 😂 5y
britt_brooke @4ravens Oh no, lol! 5y

I never pick a favorite of the year because I have too many, but here are my stats.

I usually read more women than men, so this year was strange. 2018 goals: read more women, POC, short story collections, nonfiction, and poetry. I‘ll play it safe and set my book goal to 150 since I read so many short books last year.

Well, think these might be my final #yearendstats I kind of wanted to hit 100 books when I saw I was so close but alas, being with family soooo much put a major damper on the reading.
Oh well, I had no real goal for number read.
