2022 Reading Stats & Reflection

What a reading year I’ve had! 417 books is my best year yet, quantitywise. I’m not sure about quality because I was reading so much and, you know, raising and teaching a kid and carving out time for a husband, and volunteering 🙂 I rolled over my book a day challenge from 2021 and made it until April 15 and also was a first round judge for the Cybils Awards and both of those things made this total high.

For the first time since I started blogging, I’m not choosing a top 10 for books or movies. I just don’t have it in me. I’m burned out. I did post my 5 star reads and that will have to suffice. I did do some statting (honestly, I’m making everything a verb these days, so why not?) and here’s what I found…

Books read 417

Publication year most read 2022 with 168 titles

Oldest Book Anatole & the Cat by Eve Titus (1957)

Okay, tell me your FAVORITE book of the year in the comments and I’ll add it to my 2023 reading list!

    Hey Stacy! 417 books – wow! I read 64 and that is my lowest number since who knows when? However, 2023 will be better. I’ve read 3 books since December 20th and am hoping my ‘reading mojo’ is back. Happy New Year to you and your guys! I’m going to be reading The Lost Apothecary for a mystery book group later this spring.

    Ugh. Last night I compiled my list of favorite reads for 2022 and there’s no way I can pick my #1 favorite. I couldn’t even limit my list to 10, so instead of a Top Ten post, it will be a Best of 2022 post. Congrats on your great year of reading! I’m very impressed.
