For those of you who are curious, here's how this year's book numbers ended up.
2010 book count:
Total number of books I read in 2010: 181
Number of new books I read: 129
Number of books I read twice in 2010: 7
And here they are broken down by genre...
...and by age.
Conclusions: My reading habits have changed since last year. I read WAY more young adult stuff in 2010, but far fewer mysteries. (Oddly enough, my fantasy count stayed the same.) I also read more new books this year, and new books were a much higher percentage of the total.
It's tempting to say that the changes are because I'm taking my writing more seriously. I'd like to claim that I'm reading more YA and new books for research purposes, but the increase is more likely due to the fact that the people I hang out with online love YA and recommend awesome books with amazing frequency.
So how about you? Have your reading habits changed this year? And if so, why?
