2017: My Year in Books

Hey everyone!

I'd like to share my year in books. I started out with some lofty goals most of which I didn't make, but at least I had fun trying.

 Today I'll recap some of my bookish stats for this year, and tomorrow I'll be back with some of my goals (both bookish and personal) for 2018!

I wonder how long it's going to take me to get used to writing 2018 instead of 17? My guess is at least 3 months.

Here were my goals for 2017:

  1. Read 100 books Currently I'm at 13/100    There was too much going on to make this. I changed it to 40 a while ago, and can successfully say I have read 40 books
  2. Read 17,000 pages 10,843. Close-ish but no cigar. Goodreads also counts pages differently in some cases, so my total is what I actually read, but won't necessarily match up with the GR totals below.
  3. Read 15 unread books on my shelves: Currently, I've read 21/15 Here's one I actually surpassed! A combination of books that already were on my shelves and a lot of new ones that I won via GR this year.
  4. Check out and read 15 library books  I managed 15/15 here. I stopped being able to go to the library after my lockout at work ended, but I still managed to make this one!
And, here's my year in books according to Goodreads.

Some Stats That I Tracked Myself:

Number of Books Read: 40
Shortest Book: 28 pages
Longest Book: 470 Pages
Average Number of Pages: 274.5 pages
Number of Pages Read: 10,980
Sources: I owned, or someone bought for me: 9/40 (22.5%)
Library: 15/40(37.5%) Goodreads Giveaway Wins, past and current years 16/40(40 %)
New To Me Authors: 33/40
Average Rating:  3 Stars
Average Number of Days Spent Reading Per Book: 5.47 Days
(Some of these took a really long time for me to get through

I was very fortunate this year with Goodreads Giveaway wins. I started entering giveaways again in July of this year and was fortunate to have won 24 books.
