BOOKS. Books and more books!
I love to read. I started keeping track of what I read a few years ago when I started keeping a planner, and I am loving it! Here is a peek of my book year in review.
(and several half done which weren’t worth finishing. My life philosophy is that it’s too short for mediocre books. I rarely finish a book I would rate less than three stars.)
Five Star Fiction:

Five Star Nonfiction:
My Average GoodReadsRating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
(That’s because I rarely finish a three star or fewer book)
Most popular book I read:
I re-read the Harry Potter series every October. This year I included the kids. It takes me a LOT longer to read aloud. I had them finish the last few on Audible.
Book with the fewest pages: with 142
Book with the most pages: with 985
Highest Rated: (Good Reads average of 4.8 stars)
PopSugar Reading Challenge: finished all the prompts, including the advanced, except for “a book containing a heist” I finally finished in January.
Books that took place in Iowa: 3
Audiobooks or ones I read aloud: 6
Most books read in one month: 15 in July
Fewest books read in one month: 6 in June
Books on Kindle or Libby: 46
Murders: definitely more than 100
Goals for next year-Undecided
The average CEO reads 60 books a year so that may be my goal. My goal of 100 this year was a HUGE challenge. Aiming for almost 2 books a week was hard with my busy life, but I just wanted to see if I could do it! Now that I know I can, I will likely back off so I can devote more time to writing (or watching Netflix. )
