Book stats

I kept a record this year of everything I read. It was interesting, but I'm not sure if it was worth the bother. What I recorded: Date begun, whether fiction, author, date completed, whether audio, gender of author. I left out books I didn't read through from front to back, so I left out most of the poetry books I read.

I read 86 books, and I finished 71% of them. 76% were by men. 31% were audio. 29% were non-fiction. I didn't record whether the book was new to me, or the genre. If I do it again I'll record those.

I read about one SF book a month.

January: Black Man by Richard Morgan
February: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell (audio)
March: Matter by Iain M Banks (audio)
April: The Carhullan Army by Sarah Hall
May: World War Z by Max Brooks and Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson (on audio)
June: The Country You Have Never Seen by Joanna Russ (SF criticism)
July: Cowboy Angels by Paul McAuley and City at the End of Time by Greg Bear
August: Green Mars (audio)
Sept: The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon
Oct: The Dead Zone by Stephen King and Blue Mars (audio)
Nov: Red Dwarf, Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers by Grant Naylor (audio)
Dec: none yet unless you count Paradise Lost

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
