How many books read in 2007?
Favourite book read?
Oldest book read?
Longest book title?
How many re-reads?
Most books read by one author this year?
And how many of this year's books were from the library?
To see how I got on
Total books read 147
Number by women authors 99
Total non fiction 15. Shame on you!
Total re-reads 55. Notable that the year began with no re-reading at all and as things got worse and worse, the re-reads shot up.
Oldest probably Dombey & Son
Newest probably The Rain Before it Falls
Longest title Charlotte Mary Yonge the Story of a Uneventful Life by Georgina Battiscombe
Shortest title Angels, Marian Keyes
Favourite Bleak House, Put Out More Flags, Persuasion, all re-reads.
The Young Stepmother, C M Yonge. The Heir of Redclyffe, C M Yonge.
Least favourite. I failed to finish these:
As it is in Heaven by Niall Williams.
How to be Good by Nick Hornby.
The 2½ Pillars of Wisdom by Alexander McCall Smith.
Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell
Love Me, Garrison Keillor.
The Blue Flower, Penelope Fitzgerald
I finished but disliked the books I read by Marian Keyes and Catherine Alliott.
Most books by one author must be Alexander McCall Smith.
