For Book Club Friday this week I am jumping on the bandwagon I saw Amber jump on and doing this book meme all about the books I read in 2012!
How many books read in 2012? 18 (I was pretty slack this year, but in my defense I finally finished The Bible which is a super long book!)
How many fiction and non fiction? 13 fiction, 5 nonfiction
Male/Female author ratio? 5 male, 14 female. I know that is 19, but The Vow was co-written by the couple that experienced it.
Favorite book of 2012? Sorority Sisters- I read it during beach month and loved it!
Least favorite? Love Lies- I knew it was going to be biased but I was so curious I jst had to read it
Any that you simply couldn't finish and why? I think I started a book but put it back on my to-read list because I was ready for some fiction and it was a non-fiction book
Longest and shortest book titles? The Bible was about 900 pages of tiny font so that was definitely the longest. Empty Promises was probably the shortest at 224 pages.
How many books from the library? none. I live within biking distance of a library but I get most of my books through paperbackswap.com
How many books read did I purchase? I think I actually purchased 3 of them. The rest were trades through paperbackswap.com or borrowed from friends
How many were gifts? One was from a blog book swap, but I don't think any were gifts
How many were given to me for reviews? One
How many books read on kindle? none. I don't have an e-reader yet. But I really want a nook or an i-pad mini
Any re-reads? no...i have too many on my to-read list right now to re-read
Which countries did you go to through the page in your year of reading? hmmm honestly I can't remember. The Bible of course had many and the one I am reading now has already taken me through Germany, Rome, Capua, Judea, and Africa.
Which book wouldn't you have read without someone’s specific recommendation? The last one that I read on fear, worry, and anxiety. I haven't reviewed it on the blog yet, but it was excellent!
