December Reading Report

Time for the last report of 2012 and a brief look at the whole year statistically. 

I will finish book number 20 of the month later today but I'm writing this at 9:30 AM and have completed 19 books with a total of 6986 pages. Nine of the books I read were young adult books; ten books were adult books. Nine of the books were review books and the other ten were off my TBR mountain. I was excited to finally get a chance to read at least a few of the books that have been waiting until I caught up on review book reading. 
My favorite adult books this month were She Can Tell by Melinda Leigh and The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts.
My favorite young adult books were Aurelia by Anne Osterlund and Fire Season by David Weber.

I added 60 books to my stack this month including fourteen review books. I did save some space though on my crowded bookshelves by making 40 of the new books ebooks on my Kindle. My TBR mountain currently sits at 1473. The last couple of days have been the worst. I added 19 books including seven review books and quite a number of sale books for my Kindle. 

2012 in (very brief) review:
  • I read 270 books
  • I read 86,973 pages.
  • I read 175 review books
  • I added 620 books to my LibraryThing account
  • I weeded my bookshelves and removed 1500 books (most of which were donated to my local Friends of the Library group for their annual sales)
For a more detailed look at my 2012 reading, here is my Google Docs spreadsheet.


  1. You had a prolific month of reading. She Can Tell looks very intriguing. I love character-driven mysteries that also have well-crafted, exciting plots. Happy New Year!
