I read 76 books. Though I’m not sure that some are even “books” — a few were Audible Originals so a print version might not be available. And I count my DNFs.
Here we go!
Total pages ~16042.
Fiction/Non: 54/22 (well, isn’t THAT interesting?!)
New to Me Authors: 63 Repeat Authors: 13
Classics: 10 (See previous post.)
Audiobooks: 28, ~255 hours
Longest book: Vanity Fair by Wm Makepeace Thackeray, 32 hours and 18 minutes.
I gave more 5 slice pie ratings than last year and 4 and 5 slicers comprised over 70% of my reads! Not bad.
I finished a series! The Broken Earth Series by NK Jemisin. Highlighly recommended.
I didn’t do any readalongs? Huh. I didn’t read any Stephen King?! Wow. I did finally read a book by Tracy Kidder, one of my favorite nonfiction writers. I read two books written by friends.
I did a fair job of reading books for the March Tournament of Books – always a wonderful time of year. I’m not doing so hot this year. I’ve read one and about 1/3 into another one.
My top favorites to share are:
Jane Eyre, narrated by Thandie Newton. Beyond fabulous!
Circe by Madeline Miller
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine – participated in one of the best book club discussions I’ve ever experienced! Very fun.
and PriestDaddy by Patricia Lockwood, a book I think I want to reread but in print. It was one that stayed with me and still perplexes.
One more thing:
I read 4 books in 2018 that were on the 1001 Books To Read Before You Die:
Happy New Year! Read and enjoy a slice of pie – in real life or in a book.
