My Half Year In Books July1st – December 31st

This year, despite returning to work after a lengthy furlough period, I managed to get through 80 books. It’s not a massive number compared to what I see elsewhere on the blogging world, but it’s big for me. I’m not a quick reader so was fairly happy to have got through what I managed. According to my half-yearly post I made back in June/July (here) I managed fifty books in the first half the year, which means, after going back to work, I managed thirty. That’s about average for when I’m back at work. Considering I was super-lazy and didn’t read much at all the past couple of months, that’s an improvement, I suppose?

In a slightly sad note, all of my five star reads were actually audio books. Not a single physical/e-book to be found in that category.

      1. Yea, reading the physicals. Simon Vance is one of my favourite narrators. I’m weird in that, if I read a book, I like to carry on with physicals. I have swapped a couple of times and it annoys me to do it.

  1. You only listened for ten days?? What the heck did you do with the rest of your time? Eat, sleep? Ridiculous πŸ˜‚

    If you were to go back and read your five-star books written, do you think they’d be as good?

    1. That’s ten days of combined listening time … somewhere in the region of 40 audio books πŸ˜‚

      I don’t know, I’d like to think so. But sometimes a narrator really breathes life into a book in the way my reading can’t
