Every Saturday we hope to share with you our thoughts on reading and books. We thought that it would be good practice to reflect on our reading lives and our thoughts about reading in general. While on occasion, we would feature a few books in keeping with this, there would be a few posts where we will just write about our thoughts on read-alouds, libraries, reading journals, upcoming literary conferences, books that we are excited about, and just book love miscellany in general.
2022 Reading Stats
Every year, I share my reading stats, thanks to Goodreads. My target for 2022 was to read 200 books, and I am glad to share that I was able to read 249 books with 22,075 pages read – as compared to 370 books in 2021 and 403 books in 2020. Evidently, my reading numbers are going down each year, which desperately needs to be remedied in the coming year.
Here is a breakdown of books I read across genres:
I read 185 picturebooks in total (inclusive of fiction and non-fiction). Here is a range of books I read in 2022 – the shortest and the longest title, most popular to the least popular:
Here is a sample of the range of books I read this year. Sadly, Goodreads does not allow the books to be filtered across rankings any longer, unlike in the previous years.
