Books Books Books!

I have read 50 books in 2016, completing my Goodreads challenge. That was less than the last couple of years – I read over 70 in both 2014 and 2015, but then I’m not spending over an hour and a half commuting anymore and that’s when I would read.

I still need to properly work reading time into my new routine but I’ll get there.

According to the Goodreads ‘Your Year In Books’:
the shortest book I read was Music: From the Voice to Electronica by Charlotte Guillain
the longest book I read was On The Road To Mr Right by Belinda Jones
the average length of book was 277 pages
the most popular book I read was Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling
the least popular book I read was Improve Your Grammar by Rachel Bladon
the average rating I gave was 3.6 stars
the highest rated book I read was Murderous Maths: All Shapes and Sizes by Kjartan Poskitt
