Unfortunately, I'm a tad behind (the stomach bug is gone, but now we're working on Day 3 of a nasty cold for my kids, so I'm running a sick ward again). The "My Reading Year" topic was done earlier this week, but oh well, what can you do? Here's a recap of what I've been reading in 2015!
Total # of Books Read: 47 so far. Likely 48 or 49 by year's end!
Most Commonly Read Genres:
- Nonfiction: 11
- Mystery/Thriller: 11
- Contemporary Fiction: 9
- Historical Fiction: 4
- "Chick lit": 4
- Classics: 3
- Short Story Collections: 3
- Young Adult: 1
- Fantasy: 1
(Look at all the love for nonfiction this year! Last year, contemporary fiction was far-and-away my most common genre, and YA had a big showing too, because of my attendance at the Rochester Teen Book Festival. I give snaps to Nonfiction November and Katie's Doing Dewey Nonfiction Book Club for this change! And reading The Girl on the Train in January probably inspired more mysteries/thrillers.)
Most Read Author: Do you know, I didn't read ANY author more than once this year?? Interesting, given that I read so many excellent authors that I've been meaning to delve into a bit further. Something to think about for 2016.
How I Read: 37 paper books, 10 e-books. Yup, still favoring paper these days.
When I Read: I managed the most books in March (6). I had four months with the lowest number (3): February, May, June, and October. My reading was pretty evenly spaced this year, it seems.
Where I Get My Books From:
- Library loans: 19
- Review copies: 17
- From my own shelves: 9
- Borrowed from a friend: 2
I do so love my library!! I would like to tackle my own shelves a bit more next year though. (Reminder: I say this every year.)
Favorite Book: Not so fast! As in past years, I will make a top 10 list of my favorites from the year. Still working on that though. It will be coming at the end of the month. Feel free to place your bets! :)
