I felt exactly the same way! I keep a Google Doc but never bothered to count. Counting made me realize where my preferences lie. ;-)

SciFi/Fantasy= 44
Love= 43
Crime=37
WarTravel= 31
State of Nation= 27
Family/Self= 24
Comedy= 21

Total= 227 (As soon as I finish Lorna Doone)

Since joining the group in 2016 I have read 106 books from the list.

This group has made a difference and taken me out of my comfort zone at times.

Comedy - 46 books
Crime - 38
Family and Self - 56
Love -68
Science Fiction and Fantasy -61
State of the Nation - 53
War and Travel - 52

The numbers above may not be exact, but they are close enough to give an idea of my least used categories.

I might need some recommendations from the Comedy category. I’m not as drawn there as you seem to be, so I’m probably missing out on the good stuff.

I have read
Love: 16
Science fiction/ fantasy: 28
Comedy: 5
Family & self: 8
Crime: 9
State of the nation: 8
War & travel: 7
and am working on war and Peace. Obviously, I like Science Fiction, though I counted all 7 Harry Potters in that, as well as 2 Disckworlds and the 3 His Dark Materials, so it is a tad skewed.

I own and need to finsh
Love: 9
Science fiction/fantasy: 7
Comedy: 3
Family & self: 6
Crime: 3
State of the nation: 13
War & travel: 3

I have been trying to expand into the other categories, but War and Travel seem to all be so long...
