In Which I Post The Book List

I’m actually kinda surprised I kept up with this one, but at the beginning of 2012 I decided to keep track of all the books I’d read. I only included the ones I actually finished, though I might not do likewise this year. Mostly this was to see what kind of books I’m reading: do I read more fiction than non fiction? But part of it was to keep me accountable as to what type of books I was reading. 

I took a Children’s literature class, and that is why the 3rd category has been included. I also canvassed and babysat, and so some of the books I wouldn’t have read if I hadn’t been working (certain children’s books I read to little Gordon, for example. I did not want it thought that The Really Hungry Caterpillar is a book I’d normally pick up and read.)

Due to my iPod getting stolen, the numbering system got a bit messed up. As you can see, some numbers have been repeated twice. I wanted to write down the books in pretty much the order that I read them, and that is what I did. That is why there are, for example, 2 number 62s. I am too lazy to fix this, so even though it looks like the number is an even hundred, it’s probably just a little bit more than that.

Books that were started in 2011 but finished in 2012 are also included in this chart.

Anyway, enjoy. Or don’t…. I guess it’s your choice as to whether or not this is mildly interesting to you. 

Let me know your observations. I will make my own later, when I have more time on the internet or a chance to print it out.
