A Year in Reading: Kate Gavino

At the time of writing this, I’ve read 83 books this year. Of those 86 books, 60 were audiobooks, 12 were e-books, and 14 were physical books. I read 45 works of fiction, 27 works of non-fiction and/or memoirs, seven YA books, and five graphic novels. Twenty-three and a half books I read this year involved a love affair ruining someone’s life. (The .5 comes from Sayaka Murata’s Convenience Store Woman, in which the main character thankfully comes to her senses at the very end.)

I know all of these stats because I keep a detailed spreadsheet of my reading habits. At first, I only recorded titles and authors.
