Today we’re talking about our year in books. A Month of Favorites is hosted by Girlxoxo, Traveling with T and Estella’s Revenge. Link up at Girlxoxo.com today.
I have not had the best reading year as far as the numbers go. I just don’t seem to make enough time to sit down and read. Gee, sounds like a potential New Year’s Resolution. But here’s my “A Year in Books Timeline.” I have to thank Andi for doing a timeline with readwritethink.org since I stole her idea.
If you click on the timeline, it should get a little bigger, but if you don’t want to bother, here’s what it says:
January – 7 books, but 3 were lousy. Not a great start
February – 5 books read plus 1 not finished
March – 8 books – including 2 picture books
April – 11 books total, 2 of which I couldn’t finish
May – 5 books, all audios
June – Only 3 books, must have been having a busy summer
July – Only 2 books?
August – 5 books, summer must have been winding down
September – 7 book, back on track
October – 7 books
November – 5 books, including 1 Christmas romance
December – So far, I’ve only finished 1, but we’ll see how the month shapes up.
Apparently, it’s just in the summer that I barely read- too many other things to do, places to go, gardens to weed.
How has your reading year been shaping up so far?
Oh very neat to see it done out like that!
Even though you read more books in some months than others, you still read quite a bit. Do you ever do the Goodreads reading challenge? I’ve done it the last few years, upping my goal each time and it’s helped.
No. I’ve found I’m not very good at challenges. They don’t seem to actually have any effect on my reading habits and then I just feel like I failed when I don’t complete them.
I had a good year and a BAD dnf year, so many books
I’ve never tracked my monthly reading but my reading is down this year. There’s just too much going on!
this is so neat, I would have stolen it too if I had found it earlier, lol, my post is so boring plain: http://wordsandpeace.com/2014/12/10/a-month-of-favorites-a-year-in-books-timeline/
I really like your timeline! And 60+ books is good 🙂 You’re averaging more than 1 a week 😉
I usually hit over 100 though. 🙁
🙁 🙁 Maybe 2015 will be MUCH better!
I’ve just barely met my goal, which was 1 more than last year, 57. I’ve read 57 so far I think.
