My Reading List

I read a lot. I track my reading in Goodreads. Below are some statistics I've compiled over the last few years.

Year Total Pages Pace
2021 32 (72*) 10,196 318-page book / 5.1 days
2020 40 14,949 373-page book / 9.1 days
2019 101 32,200 318-page book / 3.6 days
2018 74 25,906 350-page book / 4.9 days
2017 76 27,588 363-page book / 4.8 days
2016 83 27,155 327-page book / 4.4 days
2015 38 12,007 315-page book / 9.6 days
2014 69 21,435 310-page book / 5.3 days

* This is the number projected for the full year if I maintain my current pace.

Note: Goodreads doesn't have page counts for a small percentage of titles. For any title with a page count of zero, I substituted the average page count of all other books (presently 334 pages).

Listed below are all 513 books I have logged on Goodreads with their star ratings, grouped by month. The linked title goes to my review.

Some titles do not have a star rating, usually because I felt I was the wrong audience for the book, in which case I didn't think it was fair to rate it.

When my rating of a book was at least 20% higher or lower than the average of other Goodreads users, I noted the variance.
