As promised, I explain here how I use my reading spreadsheet. Sorry in advance for the poor audio quality and for the lenghty video – I did not antecipate that I would have so much to talk about!

As you can see, my spreadsheet is a work in progress, but I hope you enjoyed watching the video 🙂
My stats for 2018 so far
I cannot believe it is June already! Time for me to look back over the books I’ve read in 2018 so far. And you know what that means:
I’ve read 59 books so far, comprising a total of 16.651 pages:
|Year||Number of books||Average of Pages||Min of Pages||Max of Pages|
Most of the books were contemporary titles, published in the 21st century. By publication date, The Scholars, by Wu Jingzi (1750) was the oldest book I finished this year.
|Year||Number of books||Percentage|
I had 35 four-star and 8 five-star reads, which makes for a good semester.
|Rating||Number of Books||Percentage||Average for the year|
The longest book read was, once again, The Scholars (it is a beast of a book!), and the shortest was the poetry collection Ordinary Beast, by Nicole Sealey (2017).
|Page range||Number of books||Percentage|
I read books from 17 countries, mostly European:
|Origin||Number of Books||Percentage|
As for the gender split in authors, more than 70% of the books I read were written by women:
|Gender||Number of Books||Percentage|
I read mostly novels, but 30% of the books I read were non-fiction books:
|Genres||Number of books||Percentage|
More than 40% of the books I read were paperbacks, but I “read” a fair amount of audiobooks, too:
|Format||Number of books||Percentage|
Almost 80% of the books I read came from my TBR:

That’s all for now, folks! I’ve been thinking about writing a post on my favourite 2018 reads so far, so stay tuned for that.
À propos, do you keep a reading spreadsheet? Tell me about it!
And if you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know in the comments 🙂
