This month I've started and set aside five different books. It's rare for me to do this. I usually have very good taste when it comes to selecting books I'll enjoy, but this year the TBR Double Dog Dare has not exactly been good to me. I've only found one unread treasure on my TBR shelf so far, some good reads, too, but five books I didn't bother finishing at all. That's a lot for me.
Maybe it's the time of year, I thought, but I seem to be reading less these days than I usually do.
So I went back into my archives to check the data. It's all about data in 2013.
Looking at just the two months of January and February since I started keeping this blog in March of 2007 there has been a decline in the overall number of books I read each winter, but thiit levelled off this year.
You can't tell from the above graph, but in 2008 I read a very high percentage of Young Adult books, which may explain the overall decline in reading if you're counting only the number of books read. I've read fewer and fewer Young Adult books since 2008 when they made up a substantial portion of the reviews here at Ready When You Are, C.B.
I suspect I've read more-or-less the same number of pages each winter since 2008. I didn't actually count all the pages for all of the books I read each year, so this isn't very good data, but you get the picture.
I don't know where any of this is going, today, except to say that I may go out and buy a Kindle Fire this afternoon.
Maybe reading will be more fun on a Kindle Fire.
