With June almost coming to a close, I thought what better time than now to see where I am with regard to reading stats for the year. As mentioned previously, I don’t live and die by stats, but it’s a fun way to see where the trends are going, bookshelf-wise.
Total number of books read by July: 21 (way less than usual due to life in general, but that’s ok.)
Fiction/Non-Fiction: 11 fiction / 15 non-fiction.
Reading more diversely: 12 POC authors. (43% of total. Not bad, but would like to move this up to 50% by the end of the year, just as a goal.)
Other: 7 plays, 1 short story collection, 1 graphic novel.
Library books vs. books I owned (and thus removed from the home abode): 15 library books and 10 owned books.
Total number of pages read so far this year: 6,687 (av: 248 per book)
Here’s to more happy reading!
