This is something I did for the first time last year and had so much fun looking back on the books I read during the year. I have decided to make it a yearly tradition. I am an absolutely sucker for a graph! Strangely enough, this time last year I had read 128 books and this year I have read 129.
What most surprises me was just how much non fiction I read this year! I knew that it was a lot, but didn’t realize that it made up for about a third of my reading. I would love to keep that momentum going in 2020. I am pretty happy with the other numbers as well and they are all pretty similar to last year. I didn’t read as much contemporary but I have no complaints about that. I would actually love to read more SciFi in 2020!
I am not surprised by the number of audiobooks because I tend to read my non fiction that way! These numbers are very similar to last year, which I think it sort of interesting. I don’t give much thought to format, so the fact that my numbers are consistent must say something about my reading!
These numbers do not add up to 129 because there are some authors who I have read multiple books from this year. It always surprises me that I do not read more books from authors I have loved in the past! Something I should really work on in 2020.

These graphs are so cool!!! What non fiction have you enjoyed most? It is one of my goals for 2020 to read more non fiction
I posted my top nonfiction books of the year! But one book I always recommend to get into nonfiction is Bad Blood. It’s such a wild story!
Ok thanks I’ll check it out.
