2018: My Year in Books: The Infographic

I will have some fun putting together the data in an upcoming post. It’s not often I get to play with graphs and charts, so I’m looking forward to it. Meanwhile, I wanted to share the Goodreads “My Year in Books” infographic. I’m pleased to say that I met my goals this year. Make sure you share your own reading journeys in the comments or on twitter for others to follow along. You can see the online infographic here.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.

    Great list — I must check to see if I have a Goodreads info graphic too. Sadly I didn’t record all my reading on Goodreads, so my 2018 list is incomplete, but here’s what I was able to put together: http://dowsingfordivinity.com/2018/12/26/books-ive-read-in-2018/

    • Thanks for the link! Goodreads does take a bit of work, but it is fun little by little.

        I was honestly shocked that I appear to have read so few books — the total cannot be correct (I think I must have reread some paperbacks which didn’t get recorded on Goodreads). Especially need to do better at reading books on Wicca and Paganism. Only two! Fortunately some really interesting ones have been published recently so I want to read those.

    Love this. My goal in 2018 was to read less than previous years. I had averages 100 books per year for 13 years. I succeeded, but not to the extent that I wanted. 37,244 pages over 112 books. Eerily the same average that you received, 333 pages per book. I loved the book cover montage. I may revisit to write down a few titles.
