Wrapping up 2008

Here are my reading stats for 2008:

I read a total of 273 books in 2008 (this does not include fiction picture books, though it does include non-fiction picture books). 30 adult books, 93 YA novels, 67 juvenile/YA non-fiction books, 73 middle grade novels, and 10 graphic novels. 16 of these were audiobooks.

My reading resolution was to read more non-fiction books. In 2008 I read or listened to 11 adult non-fiction books and 67 juvenile/YA non-fiction books. Non-fiction reading made up just under 30% of my reading (and listening) in 2008.

Here's the breakdown month by month (this includes audiobooks):

January - 22
February - 30
March - 21
April - 26
May - 16
June - 27 (8.5 were for the 48-Hour Book Challenge)
July - 15
August - 23
September - 16
October - 26
November - 35
December - 22

My highest months were November (due to Cybils reading), February (nothing to do in Chicago in February except curl up inside and read!), and June (thanks, 48HBC!). I'm happy with these numbers and I just hope to discover many excellent books in 2009 just like I did in 2008!

Wow.

And here I was happy with having read 57, not counting picture books.
