I should have better things to do with my time… but oh no. I’ve finally finished transferring my 2007 reading into a spreadsheet, so what’s the first thing I do?
Ta-dahhh! A graphical representation of my 2007 reading:
January was a very good month for reading! I did pretty well during summer as well, though towards the end of the year, I just haven’t had much time for reading. I did make a bit of an effort to get through my TBR pile in December (reviews to come).
Overall, a pretty good mix of fantasy, mystery, and romance – although I admit if you dig down into the detail, you’ll find most of the non-romance books have pretty strong romance threads running through them. The one non-fiction book I did read in 2007 was Georgette Heyer’s biography, so that was romance-related as well!
Quick stats for the year:
183 books read in total – Mysteries made up about a third, as did romance, while fantasy books accounted for around one-fifth
And I read books by around 95 authors – I say around, as I’m excluding anthologies from this count
Most-read author: Elizabeth Peters (surprise, surprise) – 30 EPs plus 6 of her Barbara Michaels books
2nd most-read author: Eloisa James – 13 books in total and I finished her backlist this year
For the next post, I promise I’ll stop blathering on about overall stats and start naming books – and authors!
