How Many Books Did You Read in 2013?

how many books have you read in 2013 fb

Oh Goodreads- while I may be lazy about updating my shelves sometimes- I do love that reading widget. It helps me keep track of how many books I read in current year. Even more- you can see the stats for the year- longest book you’ve read & shows how many books you’ve ranked into 5 stars, 4, 3- so on and on.

So…. How many books have you read?


Here are my stats for the 2013 year**


Book Goals: Read 115 books in 2013

Books Read:Β  143 books in 2013

5 Star Rated Books: 18

4 Star Rated Books: 68

3 Star Rated Books: 48

2 Star Rated Books: 9

Longest Book Read in 2013: The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton (also a 5 star rated book!)


Compared to 2012, when I read 114 books- 2013 was a much better book year for me!



So.. How many Books Did YOU Read in 2013? Did you exceed your expectations? Looking ahead to 2014- have you clarified your reading goals?

** Note: At current posting, it’s 143- however, with still a few days left in 2013- very possible to add at least 1 book (perhaps 2).

    Hey T:

    I’ve read 173 books so far this year and might be able to squeeze one more in if I can get through a “thick” Five Days At Memorial by Sheri Fink. lol

    I’m down from last year when I read 200 but have been ill and in the hospital a lot this year so I guess that’s what threw my numbers off. I was hoping to go over the 200 in 2013 but didn’t make it. Oh well, I’ll try for 2014.

    Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!!!

    T, it looks like you had a great year! I have The Secret Keeper on my list of books to read in 2014.

    As of today, I’ve read 158 this year – hoping to finish at least one more if not 2 before the end of the year! I did surpass my reading last year which was my goal!!! Still working on my goals for 2014!

    Happy New Year T!!!

    • K-
      The Secret Keeper is a great book! It was my first Kate Morton book- and I’ll def be looking to read other books by her!

      158- whoo! I’m reading TAKEDOWN 20 right now (I’ll prob finish it before end of year- maybe 1 more!)

      I’m working on my goals for 2014 as well- and also working on a “What I Learned in 2013”!

      Happy New Year to you K! πŸ™‚

  3. Wow! You’ve been busy. I hit 55 books ( so far) with my goal of 50. I spent a few months traveling this summer, so my count was a little lower that most years- which is often closer to 75.

    • Traveling is good! Some years you read a lot- some not as much. I think as long as you read at least something- it’s all good πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by and sharing your goal πŸ™‚

    • You read! That is all that is important. I mean don’t get me wrong- I like to set up goals- but life was HARD this year. I had many things & ppl and whatnots pulling at me- plus my books wanting to be read. So I told myself “Just read. When you can. Wherever you can.” Giving yourself wiggle room helps!
