Wrap Up…

This year I decided to participate in reading challenges and to keep track of bookish stats.
From January – March I read sixteen books. I am on target to meet my challenge goals…go me! Once I put my stats into pie charts a couple of interesting facts came to life. I only read one book, this quarter, by a male author. I was shocked! The good news is – so far I have read four books in the second quarter of the year, and three of the four are by male authors, so it will probably all balance out by the end of the year. I also felt like I wasn’t reading very many “new to me authors”. As it turns out more than 50% of my books were by new authors.

I’m really enjoying keeping track of these stats and can’t wait to see how it progresses throughout the year!

Let’s get social…


Thank you for visiting and happy reading!
