Books I read in 2011

I set a goal to read 40 books in 2011 and ended up reading 41. My goal for 2012 is 52 books, which I’m already behind on.

Page count: 19,645 pages. That’s 138 more pages per book than in 2010.

I also read more books I liked than in 2010.

2010:

3 five star ratings, 15 four star ratings, 18 three star ratings

2011:

23 five star ratings, 14 four star ratings, 1 three star rating, 2 two star ratings, 1 one star rating

Of course, it could be that I got worse at accurately rating books, but I doubt it. I did read all of Harry Potter and a lot of Orson Scott Card, after all.

The worst book, book 10 of the Wheel of Time, only got 1 star because Goodreads doesn’t let you give negative ratings. (You should be my friend on Goodreads.)
