2019 Reading Statistics

I love statistics! I religiously use Brock’s spreadsheet throughout the year and think seeing the results are so fun. I actually hope to take advantage of more stats in 2020 than I did in 2019. Here’s what I have for the past year.

Books By Genre

Most of the books I read in 2019 were actually non-fiction (15), followed by fantasy (14), science fiction (11), and a tie for horror and contemporary (10 each).

Books by Month

You can see where I hit a slump in July, and then hit a wave(?) in August! Other than that, I’ve mostly been consistent at hitting around 7 books per month.

Books by Age Group

This year I read mostly adult, with about a quarter of YA, and a sprinkle of MG and NA. I’m definitely pulling more and more away from YA, so we’ll see if that trend continues in 2020.

Books by Status

Only about 6% of the books I read were re-reads, and I only DNFed close to 9% of the books I picked up (9 total).

By Rating

I always find these ones super interesting! While my average rating for 2019 was 3.76, I had way more 4-star reviews (33) than any others. I also had a good amount of 5-star ratings (17!!). Only one book managed to sink to 1 star, while five books each went to 2 and 2.5 stars.

Books in Days

I have to pull the chart on the left so that rows make more sense. You can see from this that I averaged almost 2400 pages a month (holy cow). What I find more interesting is the chart on the right! It’s wild to think that I average almost 80 pages a day, but I think it’s sometimes hard for me to tell how much I’ve read when I’m reading ebooks.

Do you tend to nerd out on statistics? Ever keep a spreadsheet of your reading?

  1. Great post, I love reading stats! I just posted my stats from the year today as well, and interestingly, we focused on almost entirely different stats, which made this really fun to read.
    I’m still in awe that you read so many books in August!
