My 2012 vs 2011 GoodReads Challenge

GR Challenge

2011 was the first year I took part in the GoodReads reading challenge. I decided to read 50 books in the year and exceeded that target by reading 66. Feeling all motivated by my success I set my target in 2012 at 100 books. Sadly :( I didn’t achieve it and read only 70 books but it is still more than 2011. Sticking to my guns I’ve set this years target at 100 again, I’m gonna try my best to beat it this year.

At the start of 2012 I looked at GoodReads and reviewed my year in books. Not breaking away from tradition I’m doing it again this year to see what did I do in terms of books through 2012.

So here’s the stats in comparison to last year (2011).

GR Pub Date Chart

Unlike 2011, in 2012 all the books I read were published after 1995 and not earlier than that.

GR Pages count

Last year I read 25,397 pages, thats 751 less than 2011. :(

GR Rating chart

I gave 6 books 5 stars!! (10 in 2011)
And 32 books got 4 stars. (32 in 2011)
A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin was the longest book I read with 1,177 pages. (Fall of Giants by Ken Follett, 985 pages in 2011)
And there were no books that I did not finish! (1 in 2011)

How many books did you read in 2012? Notice any trends in your reading?

    oh yeah the Goodreads giveaways are fun. I’ve won only one until now though. Which books did you win?
