Book Blogger Hop
Topic for the week of December 17-23, 2021:
How many books have you read this year (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews).
The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, I relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
Book Blogger Hop topic Topic for the week of December 17-23, 2021:
How many books have you read this year (Submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)?
Well, that’s a deceptively simple question.
DISCLAIMER: I’m writing this on December 12, and scheduling it ahead of time (due to some expected family obligations), so the stats might change slightly by the time this is published!
My answer, according to Goodreads, is 72 books (albeit, some where very short)! My goal for 2021 was 64 books (because I turned 64 this past year). In addition, I DNF another FIVE books!
Well, that’s a short answer, so let’s beef it up a bit with some graphics. I’m not sure if you can tell from this first one just how many books I read in each genre (the colors are a bit strange) but I can’t figure out how to fix that. Still, I think it gives you a rough idea (34 Historical Fiction, 20 Literary Fiction). I’m a touch unhappy with this because I couldn’t give more than one genre to each book.
However, my ratings breakdown came out better:
There’s also this:
And, well… that’s it, really!
What about you? Did you read more books than last year, or fewer? How many did you want to read? How many did you finish?
Thanks again to Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer for this blog hop, and Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews for the topic!
