MY YEAR IN BOOKS – 2022
It’s January, so a great time to take a look back at my year in books.
I 💜 BOOKS!
I love to read and have always been an eclectic and voracious reader. Being an author, editor and book coach is a great excuse to embrace what I love and do even more of it.
We can learn a great deal about story and writing craft from reading and analyzing books.
I have been much more diligent in tracking the books I have read the past few years. There are a lot of great tools for tracking books. I actually use BookBuddy to keep track of my writing books. But for tracking the books I read each year, I use Goodreads. I find it user friendly, and I like the way I can set up specific book shelves and pull detailed stats for the year.
MY 2022 READING SUMMARY
It’s cool to be able to look at my reading year as a visual and also to see the overall stats, like the total number of books read (90), average number of pages per book (226), and total number of pages read (20,374).
MY YEAR IN PICTURE BOOKS
For example, since I have book coaching clients writing Picture Books (PB), I do try to read a number of PBs each year. It’s nice to be able to see a visual of those books. This year, I read and tracked 23 published PBs, both fiction and non-fiction.
AND THEN SOME…
Of course, as a freelance editor and book coach, my year in books includes quite a few pre-published manuscripts that are not represented here. So, my page read is quite a bit higher than reflected by the Goodreads stats Above. But this post covers the published works that I consumed in 2022.
If you have a Goodreads account, you can find me there. Pop in to my Goodreads profile and see what I am reading.
