2018 Reading and Challenges Wrap Up

Just like last year, I wanted to take one post and just do a recap of 2018!  I did this exact post last year and the year before and loved seeing it throughout the years.  This year I will compare 2018 to 2017, let's go!

Total number of books I read in 2017: 214
Total number of books I read in 2018: 225

Total number of pages I flipped, clicked, and so on in 2017: 67,360
Total number of pages I flipped, clicked, and so on in 2018: 74,740

To recap, I really did it in 2018!  Even with a crazy year at work and the home life was a little all over the place I am so glad and excited that I surpassed my goal!

I have been keeping track of WHERE my books were taking place all year. Below is the outcome.  

There are 14 states that I didn't "visit," which is worse than last year and the year before, so need to make an effort to "travel" the states a little more this next year!  

States that didn't make the list:
Rhode Island    New Jersey    
Kentucky     Indiana      Tennessee
Mississippi      Louisiana     Arkansas
Texas      Oklahoma    Wyoming     Nebraska
Utah    New Mexico

BUT my country number went up from 12 to 17 this year, so glad that this number went up, but want to increase it again next year.  I would love to look at a globe and see what country I have never read a book from and try to visit those countries in 2019.

Countries accounted for:
England    Scotland    Ireland    France
Canada    Bermuda    Germany   Italy
Sweden   Australia    Cuba        Norway
China     Japan          Romania   Austria


As far as the Ebook Challenge is concerned, I challenged myself to 100 ebooks and finished the year right at 100.  I am glad I met this one, I didn't overdo the ebooks, but read just the right amount.  I am going to keep this goal for next year at this number.
