On the low side for this year, but still respectable, over 100.

NancyJ (nancyjjj) | 5681 comments Thanks for compiling all this data. It's interesting to see which tags have the broadest appeal.

I think I read more books in July than in any other month this year. I liked both tags.

Even though we read only 80 books for the Journalism tag, I found that to be one of the most rewarding tags for me. I read some meaty and impactful books that I might never have read otherwise. Plus, Covid took over our lives in March.

The Science fiction tag probably stretched me the most, along with the space tag in the poll ballot game.

This list has me thinking of quality versus quantity, as well as # of books versus # of pages. It's easier to binge read thriller, suspense and mysteries. We might also be choosing shorter books this years due to covid and challenges.

LibraryCin | 8721 comments No problem! The stats are actually pretty easy, as once I'm done the shelving, the bookshelf will tell me exactly how many. (It's why it's easier for me to report the number of titles read, rather than total number of books.)

And since we have the thread where I've been keeping track of each month, it's easy enough for me to check back to compare. Keeping track of those numbers started with the shelver previous to me, Kristal. I just continued on when I took over from her.

True on all counts!

160 total with both tags combined is definitely up there.

Same for me. When Covid first struck, I found I didn't read much. I kind of didn't do much of anything. I had been gearing up for a long awaited visit from my family and they'd had to leave early so I was very bummed and just took care of the house and cooking. Then I got my mojo back and I've been reading way over my usual numbers now.

LibraryCin | 8721 comments I was working from home, and I do a lot of my reading on public transit to/from work. So, even though I had more time at home, I was filling that time with other things, not making up my loss of reading time.

However, I've cut out a few other things (online games, more tv), to add reading time back in. I still prefer working from home, though. :-)
