    I’ve been hearing a lot about Anchal Malhotra’s book, and it’s on my tbr for sure. Love your graphs and analysis, Ritu.

    Loving the graphs and pies! Ill ask you how to do that next year. This year I’m still trying to read books and reach my goal. Saving this post on Pinterest to check out some of your recommendations! Even I’ve read some books and thrown it half-way!

      Thank you Cindy 😊. There are quite a few spreadsheets available for the graphs. Kal’s works the best for me.

    I love these charts of yours. I wish you had added all of them. I will surely pick up the aunties series soon. You have been after me for so long.

      Thank you 😊. That would have been one long post. Maybe I will post one with just the graphs at the end of the year.

    I don’t know about this graph and all. It look interesting. I would love to read Aunty Series. I can’t read online too much.

    Your Stats look really cool Ritu… congratulations on coming this far this year and I hope you have many many more in your kitty by the end of ’22. The visuals do make a difference, i agree. My tbr is Chronicles of the lost daughters upon your recommendation as I absolutely loved the feel of the book. Ordered a paperback😊

    I love your reading lists and I always bookmark them. I am not aware about the book Kabbar but your call out was justified as some topics are too sensitive and when an author writes about such topics they should also do so with sensitivity. Horrified to hear about your experience! Your graphs are so colorful and they just prove how much of a ardent reader your are! Keep going!

      Thank you so much Shail 😊. I wish the author or publicist had included a trigger warning. Some things you can never get over, they are imprinted in the mind.

    Your stats are amazing! Love ask the books on your list. My eyes were drawn to “Valmiki’s Women” I downloaded it immediately before I forget…

    I don’t have any benchmark to compare this with. However I’m highly impressed by the use of analytics to track the progress. All metrics chosen are relevant. But just one question. Doesn’t it take away the fun out of reading when your surrounded by pressure to do more?

      Thank you Raghav 😊. For me, these graphs are more about how the year has been. And not a goal I need to achieve. Even where reading challenge is concerned. Reading with a goal in mind can take the joy out of it. One needs to find a balance.

    I always enjoy a peek into your reading world! But this time, I haven’t read any of the books mentioned here! My favourite so far this year has been Douglas Stuart’s ‘Shuggie Bain’. Highly recommend it if you haven’t already gotten to it!
