Mid Year Stats 2021 – Graphs Galore

It has been even more lethargic than last year with regards to this yearly plan. The last post was in the beginning of my use of blocks, and I for one, liked it for this purpose.

You can check out my last year’s post: here

I gathered up the strength to work on this in a few days and am pleased with how quickly it all came together. As usual it did its job in getting me excited for the rest of the year! Hope you find it even remotely interesting!

Total: 40390 Audio hours: 106

Shortest read: A Christmas Memory : 95 Pages Longest Read: Rhythms of War: 1088 Pages

I have actually read more than I have reviewed/uploaded on Goodreads, but as I stand by own policies, I will be taking in only the ones I have reviewed for the statistics: 145 vs last year’s 175

Genres of Graphic Novels

Short Stories sorted by Genre and nationality of author(s)

I may have read multiple books by the same author but have not set any filter for that. This is solely on the basis on number of books

Audio listening time has fallen further : 106 (for reviewed books) which totals to 4.41 days

Listening time for audiobooks

Standalone vs Series: 78 vs 67 Keeping that steady!

Books by type and where I got them from

I have been working on my NetGalley backlist this year and it shows!

Special comments:

Bought one book (Chemical Age) after reading
Ten reprints of old classic mysteries

At the end of the year I will have even better results but as it stands, the translated works I have read are:

Gender of TranslatorFrenchGermanJapaneseMandarinNorwegianRussianSpanishVietnamese

M111121

Rating spread this year is almost the same as the last year!

Rating by Genre, Mystery has sneaked back in, in comparison to the last year

Locations my reads were based in:( The legend lists the number of books in each country)

I have had a marked improvement in the variety of locations although (obviously) some countries have many more than others.

The

Fantasy World11

Year of publication:

The timeline of the stories (Any book which did not mention the pandemic, I did not accept it as 2020 but 2019ish):
