What I read in January

With my nifty new way of tracking my reading I can quickly see lots of information about what I read in January.

I read 12 books in total:
  • 5 audio books
  • 4 ebooks
  • 3 paper books
The shortest audio book was just 2 hours long, the longest was 16 hours.
Total time spent listening to audio books was 40 hours.
The shortest book was 192 pages, the longest was 368.
Total number of pages read was 1,657.

Here's where I learned about the books I read this month:
  • 4 were from the Canada Reads 2017 longlist
  • 1 from the Hackmatack 2017 fiction nominees list
  • 1 from a What Should I Read Next podcast
  • 2 from friends lists of their top reads of 2016
  • 2 caught my interest while browsing the library
  • 2 I can't remember where I heard about them from but I think it may have been from the Read Aloud Revival podcast. 
Four of the twelve books were children’s books, one poetry, two non-fiction, and five fiction.

I've already blogged about nine of the books and I will blog about the other three soon.

My geeky mind likes tracking all that info. I know, I'm weird. :-)

Last year I totally depended on Goodreads to track my books, but I couldn't do all I wanted with the info there, so I'm trying this new system this year. I set up a spreadsheet in GoogleSheets so I can track more info, like where I heard about the books.  So far I am loving it. I'm still recording my books on GoodReads and GoodReads is where I get much of my information about the books for my spreadsheet.

How'd you do in January? I'd love to hear about what you read.
