bame2013 Year End Report

In 2013 I read a total of 56 books, 43 fiction (11 of those mysteries), 13 non-fiction (4 of them biographies or memoirs).

After going through about a 6-week period when I could not find anything worth reading, I started keeping track of ‘unreadables.’ For the period of time I was doing that, there were 13 books I put in that category, 7 fiction, 6 non-fiction, of which I read anywhere from 25 to 100 pages before deciding I’d rather take poison then continue trying to read them.

Because I spend about an hour in the car each day commuting to my job (no public transportation available), I also listen to recorded books. I listened to 37 of those (24 fiction,7 of those mysteries, and 13 non-fiction, 10 of those biographies or memoirs). 3 months ago

bame2012 Year-End Report

I read a total of 56 boooks this year: 37 general fiction, 7 mysteries, 6 general non-fiction, and 6 memoirs. I wasn’t sure I was going to make my goal as I spent about a 2-month period unable to find anything worth reading. I’d read 50-100 pages of a book and give up on it.

I also listened to a total of 35 recorded books: 18 general fiction, 9 mysteries, 3 general non-fiction, and 5 memoirs. 15 months ago

bameEasy goal

This seems to be a pretty easy goal to keep up on. I do enjoy reading (most of the time) and I particularly enjoy keeping a journal of what I’ve read with a mini-synopsis and review of each book. I have found that when I’m reading a book I don’t like much, I simply avoid it entirely. To that end I’ve given myself permission to give up on a book if I’m not that into it by 50 pages or so. I used to think I had to read any book I bought or took out of the library, but no more. My free time’s too valuable to waste it. 18 months ago
