Sunday Salon: BOOKKEEPING – The Reading (Half-)Year in Review, 2011

Everyone else seems to be doing mid-year reflections on their 2011 reading, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. It’s usually enlightening to see where I’ve been with books for the last six months, consider how that compares to where I thought I’d be, and try to figure out what’s coming next. Crunching the numbers (via LibraryThing) Total books read and reviewed year-to-date: 24 (slightly behind 2010, and including reviews not yet posted here) Fiction: 14 Adult – 14 YA – 0 Nonfiction: 10 Memoir – 7 (completed the Memorable Memoirs Reading Challenge) History – 2 Other – 1 (religion) Published in 2011: 11 (all first editions, no reprints) Sources:  Personal copies (purchases/gifts. including e-books): 12 Furnished for blog tours: 6 Furnished for compensated reviews: 4 Furnished for review from other sources (publishers, authors, etc.): 2 Ratings: 4 – 5: 11 3 – 4: 12 2 – 3: 0 Unrated: 1 (counted in “read” totals […]
