2009 In Review

I'm still struggling to catch up on all of my backlogged reviews after a busy holiday season, but I took a few minutes today to look back over what I read in 2009. I finished a total of 84 books in 2009. Of those:
  • 12 were adult memoir
  • 22 were adult fiction
  • 1 was adult nonfiction (and not memoir)
  • 4 were adult audio books
  • 20 were books for middle-grade readers
  • 9 were middle-grade audio books
  • 13 were teen/YA books
  • 3 were teen/YA audio books
I read 56 books in 2008, so this was a big increase for me.

2009 was also the year I began keeping up my book blog more regularly and the year I began a separate blog for reviews of kids/YA books, Great Books for Kids and Teens, in addition to the reviews I write for Family Fun magazine. In 2009, I wrote and posted:
  • 33 reviews here at Book By Book
  • 39 reviews at Great Books for Kids and Teens
All in all, a good reading year!


  1. Wow! I'll say it was a good year. That's a lot of reviews! Good for you.

  2. Congrats on all your great reading in 2009 and here's to even better books in 2010!

  3. Sue...your stats are impressive. Happy Reading in 2010 as well.
