This year, Goodreads did all of the hard work of compiling what I read. I’m glad I faithfully added titles and dates read, even if I didn’t always add a full review.
Goodread’s Year in Books for 2015
I had set a goal to read 100 books and went slightly over at 105. My average rating overall was 3.8, which means I was reading mostly good books with an occasional bomb.
17 nonfiction books (if I include Dante’s Divine Comedy and Shakespeare’s plays in with fiction).
The rest were fiction. Not quite as many non-fiction as I had hoped, but I find it easier to work through a novel quickly than a nonfiction book. Perhaps this year I will be able to read at least 25 nonfiction, which would be about 25%–not ideal, but a better percentage.
I have a couple of reading challenges I’m eyeing and a Bible reading plan I am starting, both of which I will discuss in my next post.
I hope all of you had good reading years, too. If you’re comfortable, please share how your reading year went in the comments. I’d love to hear your experiences with books this past year.
