2014 Reading Statistics
Also known as the day I spent struggling with After Effects.
A few people have asked what I use to keep track of the books I read so here’s an Excel spreadsheet template based off mine
3 days after posting this I realised it was a lie. I re-read The Hobbit. Of course.
Some other statistics:
- The top 5 longest book I read I actually just listened to the audiobook of
- The shortest book was The Time Machine at 99 pages
- The only book to receive a perfect 10/10 rating from me was The Secret History by Donna Tartt
- My lowest-rated book was The Inner Life by Thomas à Kempis, which received a v poor 2/10
- I read the most red-spined books, then black, then white
- My most intense reading stints were in April, where I read 5 books in 4 days, and 4 books in 3 days a week later
- The oldest book I read was On the Shortness of Life by Seneca, which was published in 49AD, not before Christ :(
- The last book I read of the year was The Handmaid’s Tale, I was the only person to have actually read it by our book club meetings, so will do a discussion video on that another time
