My Reading Stats for 2010

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about anything. I’ve written a whole bunch of blog posts in my head, but unfortunately, none of them actually made it to the computer, which means I don’t remember a one of them. Oops.

So I thought I’d get the ball rolling again by doing an easy post about my book numbers for 2010 (here’s last year’s). I got my Kindle 2 in February 2009 and since then, I have definitely been converted to e-books. I looove e-books. I do like p-books (i.e. physical books) now and then, mostly for those that look really pretty or have lots of nice pictures (graphic novels, picture books, board books), but when I want to read a novel, I always check and see if I can get a copy of the e-book from the library first.

I got an iPad

for my birthday this year, and I kind of wondered whether my

would be phased out, but no. I have yet to read any books on my iPad. Just as I suspected, I really don’t like reading on a backlit LCD screen. If I wanted to do that, I would read all my books on my laptop. (I did read a magazine though. I really enjoyed the free copy of 

Intelligent Life that I downloaded from the App Store. I was willing to pay for a subscription too, but alas, I couldn’t figure out how to do it in less than a minute so I didn’t bother.)

Here are my reading stats for 2010:

Total books read: 49 (not including all of the picture and board books I’ve read with my daughter over and over and over again).

Of those, the # that were e-books: 12 (+1 that I purchased as an e-book after reading a physical copy from the library)

Of those e-books, the # I purchased (or was given as a gift) from Amazon

: 2  <–I suspect this number will be larger this year since I recieved some e-books for Xmas.

# of p-books I purchased/received and read: 9 (+1 that I read in 2009 but bought a copy of in 2010)

Hmm. I’m not sure what to conclude from these totals. Other than wow, I sure do get a lot of books from the library! And despite the fact that I prefer e-books, I still mostly read p-books because I am cheap. I read too much to buy every single book I want to read. My conclusion I guess is: gee I wish the library had more e-books!
