2016 was a decent reading year for me. I read 58 books in total this year (atleast these are the ones I can remember reading).
In graphs, this is what the year looks like:
I even read books by 2 Canadian authors which I forgot to put down in the list before generating this. Overall, a lot of British and American authors. I would like to expand my reading on authors from different nationalities this year.
My most-read books were from Fiction Drama this year followed by Romance and Science Fiction. I hope I can get more Non-Fiction books in 2017. In fact, I am going to set a definite goal for Non-Fiction books in 2017. I feel like it’s really time for me to explore different kinds of Non-Fiction books, be it autobiographies (of celebrities, sports people, political activists) to books on Feminism and all sorts of current issues. Who knows, maybe I’ll really enjoy it.
Not quite equal– More Female authors than Male authors. Wow!
I thought I read a lot of books in the 1900’s category but it turns out, to my surprise, I read even more books in the 21st Century category.
