So here are just a few about my reading and my blog for the 2009 calendar year.
104 books read in 2009 (2,864 in the period 1975-2009) - I had aimed to read more but struck a few "chunksters" towards the end of the year which slowed me down.
- 20 Australian authors
- 45 British authors
- 20 Audio books
- 36 new to me authors
- I read 4 on my Kindle
- I read 14 Agatha Christie's, 2 by Mike Befeler, 2 by Rhys Bowen, 2 by Ann Cleeves, 2 by Reginald Hill, 2 by Peter Klein, 2 by Stieg Larsson, 2 by Barry Maitland, 2 by Ian Rankin, 2 by Matthew Reilly, 2 by Ruth Rendell, and 3 by Charles Todd.
- 2 rated at 5
- 36 rated 4.5 to 4.9
- 58 rated at 4 to 4.4
- Average rating 4.3
- only one rated less than 3 and that was a DNF
As you can see from this graph, there was a steady growth in visitors throughout the year.
I've now added a couple more fields to my database records to give me more precision, but I'll never be able to match Bernadette's graphs etc.
Next year I'll be able to tell you how many pages I read - won't that be great?
