Since I have been keeping track of what I read on Goodreads it is easy to tell you that I have read 23,355 pages and my genre chart looks like this:
I've obviously spent a lot of time this year in the Adult Mystery and YA Realistic Fiction genres!
This year I read in more formats and using more devices than ever before. I read print books (hardcover and paperback), digital ebooks on the Sony Reader, iPad, iPad 2 and iPhone, and even listened to a couple of digital audiobooks using my iPhone. I read books that I bought, books on loan from friends, books borrowed and downloaded from Overdrive libraries (ours and Mesquite Public) and books that I got in the Exhibit Hall at ALA.
Looking back at the books I rated with 5 stars, I thought I'd share with you my top 10. Remember, these weren't necessarily published in 2011 - these are the top 10 favorites from the books I've read so far this year (in no particular order):
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
11/22/63 by Stephen King
The Strange Case of the Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper
Countdown by Deborah Wiles
Bossypants by Tina Fey
Room by Emma Donoghue
Columbine by Dave Cullen
The Ridge by Michael Koryta
