2019 Reading Statistics

I love statistics! I religiously use Brock’s spreadsheet throughout the year and think seeing the results are so fun. I actually hope to take advantage of more stats in 2020 than I did in 2019. Here’s what I have for the past year.

Books By Genre

Most of the books I read in 2019 were actually non-fiction (15), followed by fantasy (14), science fiction (11), and a tie for horror and contemporary (10 each).

Books by Month

You can see where I hit a slump in July, and then hit a wave(?) in August! Other than that, I’ve mostly been consistent at hitting around 7 books per month.

Books by Age Group

This year I read mostly adult, with about a quarter of YA, and a sprinkle of MG and NA. I’m definitely pulling more and more away from YA, so we’ll see if that trend continues in 2020.

Books by Status

Only about 6% of the books I read were re-reads, and I only DNFed close to 9% of the books I picked up (9 total).

By Rating

I always find these ones super interesting! While my average rating for 2019 was 3.76, I had way more 4-star reviews (33) than any others. I also had a good amount of 5-star ratings (17!!). Only one book managed to sink to 1 star, while five books each went to 2 and 2.5 stars.

Books in Days

I have to pull the chart on the left so that rows make more sense. You can see from this that I averaged almost 2400 pages a month (holy cow). What I find more interesting is the chart on the right! It’s wild to think that I average almost 80 pages a day, but I think it’s sometimes hard for me to tell how much I’ve read when I’m reading ebooks.

Do you tend to nerd out on statistics? Ever keep a spreadsheet of your reading?
