2011 Yearly Break Down

Total Books Read – 236 (One audio book was completed this year)
Month with most books read – August (31)
Month with least books read – May (11) (My nephew was born and I started working again after 9 months off)

There was a big drop in the numbers of graphic novels and non-fiction read.  I had limited access to graphic novels, as my copies were in storage for most of the year, and there were library access issues after the Chch earthquakes.  As for non-fiction, I’m afraid it fell prey to the fact that I now read most of my books on an iPod Touch.  Non-fiction just isn’t as appealing when there are so many fiction books easily accessible!
