My year in books, with the help of Goodreads

Note: I didn't actually read all 900+ pages of the Beatles Biography. I listened to the audiobook and it was only 8 hours long which tells me it was deeply abridged, but Goodreads didn't know that. 

Here is the link to the actual Goodreads page which shows ALL the books I read during 2017.

Here's to reading and books in 2018. If you haven't joined Goodread, it is so fun and easy and helps you keep track of your reading goals throughout the years. And then it is possible to look back and see what you were reading months or years before. I use it every day and really enjoy it. It is free.

Thanks to Deb Nance at ReaderBuzz for the idea of highlighting my Goodreads end-of-the \-year stats. She read WAY more books than me...but then it isn't a competition. Cheers!


  1. I admire you for all the reading you do, but also the variety of works you choose.

  2. I really like the graphics Goodreads used this year and it's fun to see the summary that way. Happy New Year!


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
