Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as Books and a Beat‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
So today’s topic is: Yearly Bookish Statistics!
Happy January everyone! I can’t believe it’s already two weeks in to 2017!
So this is the time of year where everyone busts out their yearly reading stats and I love checking out what people want to share! How many books they read, DNFs, re-reads. How many books in each genre. How many backlist and currently releases. How many 5 stars reads, how many 0 star reads. The list goes on!
And I think, hey that’s super cool. Wouldn’t it be nice to have this to look back on and see if and how your reading style has change? I should try doing this! Than I remember I’m a lazy slug.
I manage to keep track of the number of books I read in year thanks to Goodreads. Otherwise, that’s about it. I mean, yes, I can go back and drudge through my list and break it down into all those fun stats. But who’s got time for that!? Not I, the lazy slug.
So dear friends who are badass and actually do yearly bookish stats, I ask you this question: how do you do it?
Is it the magic of an excel spreadsheet? Do you use your Goodreads? Do you keep track all year long or compile your data at the end of the year?
Since it’s only two weeks into the new year, I might have a good chance of actually not getting to far behind on starting data collection. Who knows, maybe you’ll see a year of stats from me at the end of 2017!
So are you a data keeper or a ‘I just like to look at other people’s pretty graphs’ (like me) kinda person?
If you do like to collect data, how do you do it?
What are (or would be) your “must keep track” of things? I think I’d like to know what genres I read and how many backlist I manage to get to in a year!
