        Looking like you’ve spent quite an active year of reading, writing, watching good films . I’ve read a lot as well.

        It definitely is… You have some great recos. I want to watch Shadow and the bone and also read The boy, the mole, the fox and the horse to my daughter too.

    Wow! You have nailed book reading down to a science! Very impressive! I was fortunate to watch Pankaj Kapur’s Dopahari as a play, wasn’t aware that it is available as a book too. Will surely check it out. All the best for the rest of the year, Happy Reading.
    PS: It would be great if you could read and review my books, too…I would be honoured to know what you think about them.

    What a variety of books you’ve read so far! I don’t quite like fantasy, but I will watch Shadow and Bone on Netflix since you’ve recommended it.

    Your CauseAChatter posts were gold. 🎖️

    I bought Excess Baggage but haven’t read it yet. I keep getting distracted by other things! 😁

    Also, many people will agree with you when you say that Club You To Death was not as engaging as expected. Seen many opinions when the book was released.

    What an extensive list. Whenever I read your posts, I feel like putting my head into the sand. I would like to read Excess Baggage for sure. I have got a mental block for books. Have to snap out of it.

    Wow! Someone actually ran analytics on their reading patterns. How did you source this data? I reckon that you might be reading digitally only. Also, please share if you use some tool or native feature to get to these charts.

      Thank you Raghav. 😊 There are quite a few spreadsheets available for tracking reading and charts. I prefer using Kal’s since it is perfect for book bloggers – tracking upcoming releases, ARCs etc. You can check it out at https://readervoracious.com/2021-reader-spreadsheet-template/

      For non book bloggers, there is one from Brock Roberts. It has less blogging related stuff and more charts. https://bit.ly/38GzEMI.

    I love the graphs, kid. And the audiobooks because I can also read them. You talk so much about Hunted by the Sky. It feels like I am reading it with you.

    Wow..now I am so jealous of you. There was a time I would read a book in 2-3 days. But after the baby I just can’t finish a page in a day. Have so many books in my library that are yet to be read.

    There are so many varieties of book to read really find it difficult to even choose. Your list is great and so are your statistics but I would still be lost. I love reading but confined to 2 books a week.

      Ha ha. I can totally relate to that, Shail. 😊 It does get difficult to choose. 2 books a week is a pretty good average.

      Glad you enjoyed it, Noor. 17 is pretty good for a half year mark. I know I am barely going to get any time to read this Holiday season.
