Thanks for a Great 2014

So, that’s 2014, eh? 169 books read (short of my goal by 21), 211 posts (short of my goal by a couple hundred), almost triple the traffic over last year.

I did a quick breakdown of how my reading broke down by genre over the last few years. There were a few anomalies this year (what’s up with my Urban Fantasy and General Fiction numbers?) which makes it interesting for me, anyway — don’t know about the rest of you.

Genre 2014 2013 2012 2012-2014
Fantasy 11 (7%) 15 (8%) 12 (6%) 38 (7%)
General Fiction/Literature 7 (4%) 30 (16%) 30 (14%) 67 (12%)
Humor 3 (2%) 0 (0%) 0 (0%) 3 (1%)
Mystery/Suspense 62 (37%) 63 (33%) 73 (35%) 198 (35%)
Non-Fiction 4 (2%) 2 (1%) 11 (5%) 17 (3%)
Science Fiction 17 (10%) 14 (7%) 11 (5%) 42 (7%)
Steampunk 3 (2%) 3 (2%) 11 (5%) 17 (3%)
Theology/Christian Living 42 (25%) 37 (19%) 10 (5%) 89 (16%)
Urban Fantasy 20 (12%) 26 (14%) 48 (23%) 94 (17%)
Western 0 (0%) 0 (0%) 1 (0%) 1 (0%)

Hopefully everything will be higher next year — books, posts, and traffic. We’ll see — I’m doing the Goodreads Challenge again (same goal as the last 2 years, 190) and I think I’m going to try to work in The Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge
. I might throw in a couple other “projects” that I’ve been thinking about.

    • I know plenty of people (some readers of this blog, actually) that’d think 50 is a huge number. Glancing at your blog, you clearly spend more time socializing and getting outside than I do — which has a certain appeal.

      Thanks for stopping by, and hope you have some good reading in 2015 (and fun and success outside of that that 50).
