A few years ago now I started trying to count things like how many books I read in a year, what age range I was reading for, and how well I was succeeding at reading more diversely. This has lead to me keeping ever more detailed spreadsheets of my reading. This year, I didn’t track pages read. I started 266 books in 2016, and finished 243 of them – about the same as the last couple of years.
Without further ado, I present my year in reading graphs.
The Who – Authors
The Who – Characters
This is the first year I tracked this, and it was a lot of fun!
As I thought might be happening, I read more books with diverse characters than is shown when looking at the authors. I’ve really appreciated the search for #ownvoices authors in 2016, and plan to keep that up, too.
