2014 Stats

image

I have posted my most memorable reads of 2014 and now here’s some interesting statistics.

Number of books read: 87
Number of pages read: 31,666
Average page per day: 86.7
Fiction/Non-fiction: 84:3
Reread: 3
Most read author: Anne Perry (3)
Most hyped-up: The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson
Most disappointing: The Eight by Katherine Neville
The Little Friend by Donna Tartt

I couldn’t meet my goal of averaging 100 pages a day, but there had been days that I was traveling on the road or flying. The number of books read was about the same but I have read more substantial books like Swann’s Way. The two most disappointing books don’t even boast a credible plot for all the effort put into them. The Orphan Master book is just a social hype as Americans are interested in everything North Korean. What little non-fiction I read turned out to be very rewarding—all three books made my memorable list.
