    I am good with reading books just horrible at remembering to update them on challenge websites. I am working on that part this year.Great to see a fellow book lover.

    All the best for your reading in 2024! Looking at your graphs made me so tempted to check out the Excel but I know it’ll only overwhelm me so I’m going to stay away for now. I’m going to read Rock Paper Scissors this year – have heard lots of good things about it.

    What a great reading year and let me celebrate your DNFs because I love that for you. Life is too short to read books that aren’t for you and there are more books out there than we can read in a lifetime. Huzzah for you!

    Congratulations on reading so many backlist books, I’m thrilled that Project Backlist was helpful for you in this! (It was for me too, I read like 52% backlist in 2023.)

    Wishing you the best for 2024, happy reading!

    Wow I love your graphics. But I wont get to doing that for myself. I have enough I want to do. This year I’m sticking to only updating my reads on TBR as goodreads did not show any interest in me hahaha! I’ve reduced the count from 40 to 25. I know I’ll read more than that. Plus I know I don’t want to read other genres. So I’m chilling and reading this year.

    I have never taken stock of books like this. But I enjoyed going through your graphs. It would be difficult to decide which genre to turn to, but I guess one grows into the process. My backlist is long, like 1000s of km long. But I shall try and pick pace and read 10 of them this year and then there are the new ones.

    I’m amazed at how organised you are Ritu and I love those graphs even as I’m certain I would never be able to make something like this. This year I just gave up trying to update the books I’ve read. I need to get back to doing that at least on Goodreads.

    Dropping by to add that I feel terrible about missing the blog hop this month. I did manage a post, though it was 2-days late. Hopefully, I will be ready with a post next month

    Read more dear so I get inspired to read atleast half of it. Statistical representation took me back to MBA days. Love you for being that Avid reader and I wish to become one.

    Point1, your stats look just amazing. My 2023 was not very good reading wise, I re-read more books than new ones.
    Point2, This statement ” I do not believe in book buying ban. Can’t do. Won’t do.” is so me!! I just can’t resist buying books
    Point3. I applaud you for taking part in so many challenges. I literally get the hives!
    Point4. One of my favourite books from last year was Lessons In Chemistry too. I am planning to read the Dust Child.

    Aha.. I loved that graphics and very recently I made a few for my clients project report . I picked 9 books from genres spiritual/religious, Thriller/ Murder Mystery/suspense and Biography/autobiography which I will definitely read this year as its my own set TBR. I prefer taking feedbacks of my reviewer friends without getting in any much reading challenges but end up making my choices to decide what to read and what not. Close to 55 reads i recorded in 2023 lets see how much quality read I can do in 2024.

    Forever your fan, Ritu! What a post!

    The Authenticity Project is one of the most beautiful books I’ve read in a while, and I’ll wait to hear your views on it too. The rest of your list is going straight to my book buying list!
