Oops! It’s January 9th, and I just realized that I never did an update post for the beginning of the month and the year!
In early September, I wrote a post called Counting Up the Books, talking about two things I love: BOOKS and NUMBERS. That was the beginning of a monthly feature for me, in which I tally up just how many unread books there are in my house and on my Kindle. I’ll omit my September numbers here, for two reasons:
- I originally included non-fiction books, but have since dropped them from my totals, since I’m so much less likely to actually read any of the non-fiction books I own. (Hey, they’re there if I need them!)
- Right after my September count, I did a major culling of my shelves and dropped off bags and bags of books for donation, which accounts for a big drop from September to October in the number of physical books in my house.
Okay, moving on. Here are my book totals from the past three months, adding in new books and subtracting books read or given away:
Hmm. We seem to be going in the wrong direction!
How am I doing at the start of 2016? Let’s see:
So… by this reckoning, I’ve gotten myself back to where I was two months ago. Yay, progress? I guess.
How are your shelves doing this month?
Don’t forget to join me for Shelf Control on Wednesdays, where we highlight books from our shelves that we really want to read!
