2016 Reading and Challenges Wrap Up

Just like last year, I wanted to take one post and just do a recap of 2016!  I did this exact post last year and the year before and loved seeing it throughout the year.  This year I will compare 2016 to 2015, let's go!

Total number of books I read in 2016: 200
Total number of books I read in 2015: 237

Total number of pages I flipped, clicked, and so on in 2016: 69,029
Total number of pages I flipped, clicked, and so on in 2015: 77,778

To recap, I read more in 2015 and this year has been the lowest reading year since 2011.  A lot of changes happened at home and on the job, so maybe the number will go back up next year.

I have been keeping track of WHERE my books were taking place all year.  Below is the outcome.  There are 7 states that I didn't "visit," which is four better than last year!  But there are 16 countries other than the US that I spent some time in, which is the exact same as last year! I am excited that my states went up and thought I had read more countries, hopefully I can increase that number next year.

States that didn't make the list:
Utah            North Dakota
Montana      South Dakota
Iowa            Mississippi

Countries accounted for:
Ireland     Egypt                     Ukraine
Russia      Australia                 India
Israel       Botswana, Africa     Korea
France     Vietnam                  Italy
England    Greece                   Canada
Netherlands                           Spain

As far as the Ebook Challenge is concerned, I challenged myself to 50 ebooks and finished the year at 37.  Not great, but over half.  Some books I read part ebook part, physical copy and those I didn't count and will not continue to count, so I am not completely disappointed in this number.
