Well, I think it's safe to say that little novella I read skewed my results a bit, but it's also safe to say that Winter is a freaking long book! 824 pages! I don't think I realized that as I was reading it (yes, I did it -- I thought it would never end)! I've done pretty well this year, if I do say so myself (pats myself on the back, does a little jig of celebration).

Fun facts, I read a book that literally everyone else read (The Girl on the Train, no review sorry folks) and also one that basically no one else read (Thirteen Guests, I did review this one). The really ironic part is that they're both thrillers/mysteries. So that's pretty great.


Thus ends the pretty graphs from Goodreads portion. I went a little further, because I like finding out stuff, and I like graphs. :)

I mostly read eBooks. Surprise! (not). This isn't necessarily a preferences for eBooks but more of a readily accessible thing. My library has an excellent eBooks collection, not to mention how freaking easy it is to "check out" an eBook without getting out of my bed. Sign me up. Check me out? (That was bad, sorry).

This is probably the purdiest pie graph I've seen. I mean except for that 2015, it's almost perfectly 11% all the way around. I'm kind of in awe! I apparently didn't read a single book published in 2010 or 2007 though, which is really interesting... (THIS IS WHY I LOVE GRAPHS)

Where do I get my books, you ask? Clearly I'm mostly a-borrowin' or a-buyin'. There is the small case of an ARC, as you can see, but mostly I'm hitting the library and my local used bookstore to feed my addiction.

Can you tell what my favorite genres are from this graph? Clearly I don't have any preferences. Nope, no way. I see a VERY distributed graph here. (I'm lying).

See? So much fun! I know the bottom one is the most interesting, and apparently I read WAY more books I enjoyed than books I didn't. I mean look at that graph! The 5s and 4s heavily outweigh anything else, and I still enjoyed most of the 3s even. So I'm calling that a good solid year!
