Statistics for 2008

Spread the love

I had no idea book bloggers kept so many stats about the books they read so they can do a stats post at the end of the year. I have no way of knowing at a glance most of those stats so here is what I can do (by counting by hand/eye.)

Books Reviewed This Year: 250 (including picture books) (Note: Total updated as of Jan. 4/09 when I remembered some other books I’d read not included before)
*I don’t review all the picture books I read with my kids. Just ones for challenges or ones I especially liked.

87 picture books
16 fiction (2 were Christian Fiction)
56 nonfiction (5 were Christian Non-fiction)
42 childrens fiction
31 childrens nonfiction
17 teen fiction
2 teen nonfiction

Futhermore, of those 250 mentioned above:
5 were Classics
12 were Memoirs
81 were books sent for me to review

I finished 25 challenges (but signed up for at least 12 more than that)

I think that’s it for stats I can do on my own. I got a wonderful spreadsheet from Fyrefly’s Blog to keep track of 2009 so next year’s stats will be much better.

My goals for 2009 regarding reading/blogging will be coming up soon.

I've been a nonfiction lover for as long as I can remember. I love children's nonfiction as well and love to share my knowledge and the books I gained them from, with the world. I wish more people would give nonfiction a chance.
