2013 By the Numbers

Happy New Year! I usually devote the first week of January to stats and lists of favorites (so brace yourself). This year I decided to get fancy and create an Infogr.am. Special shout out to my brother for his mad Photoshop skills since I couldn’t embed!

    THIS IS SO COOL! I have already put together my stats post to go up on Thursday, but it doesn’t look nearly as beautiful as this! Totally going to have to try this for next year. I really need to read more books that I already own and stop buying so many books! I’ve seen quite a few people who have listed all the books they acquired in 2013. Maybe that’s what I need to do to realize just how many I’ve been buying???

    Have a very Happy New Year! I hope that 2014 is filled with amazing books.

      Thanks Lu, and Happy New Year to you too!

      Listing all of my purchases might be a good idea for me too. I’m *horrible* about buying new books. My shelves are overflowing as it is!

    I see you’re one of the book bloggers whose reading stats I admire! Maybe I’ll try keep stats again in 2014; it’s a whole new year, after all! I failed in my annual TBR Pile Challenge again this year, too. My confession has yet to be posted on my blog. I was surprised to see that 9 of my 10 favorite books of 2013 were actually released in 2013, so new books keep attracting me and distracting me from the ones I already have!

    I love this graphic! You guys are so talented! At 1000+ pages, was Les Miserables worth reading? I haven’t read it yet but I’m thinking about it. Happy New Year!

      Parts of Les Miserables were mind-blowingly good, and I think I cried through the last 50 pages or so. lol That said? It probably could’ve been edited down to around 900 pages. He kept killing the flow with 40-50 page sections of unnecessary description!

    This is THE COOLEST thing. I saw it last night right after I finished my stats post and almost started over because I wanted to do one of these. Seriously, so awesome. I love infographics. It’s interesting that your library slice is so high — borrowed books is usually my smallest slice of the buy/borrow/review pie.
