My 2022 Year in Books

Here’s summary of my year as far as reading goes! I love stats so it’s fun to see all of the numbers for my reading year.

Kindle Unlimited Stats

Let’s start off with some stats from my Kindle Unlimited “Reading Round-Up”. I read most of my books through Kindle Unlimited, but I was still surprised to see some of these stats. Info is as of December 26, 2022 and was provided by Amazon through an email.

Books Read: 123
Hours Spent Reading: 3429
Pages Read: 62,345 (Based on this compared to Goodreads stats, I think this is eBook pages, not “if this was printed as a real book” pages. :))

My favorite stat from this report – I read more pages than 94.7% of Kindle Unlimited members!

I already knew this is where I did most of my reading, but I feel even more justified in having a Kindle Unlimited membership knowing I read in the upper percentile of KU remembers, at least as far as number of pages read!

Longest Book Read: Bound to the Battle God by Ruby Dixon
Shortest Book Read: Ice Planet Honeymoon by Ruby Dixon
Most Popular Book Read: Those Three Little Words by Meghan Quinn
Most Obscure Book Read: Caged by Alaska Jones (I think I just opened this one and then didn’t go any further, it’s still marked as “Want to Read” on my Goodreads shelf.
Total Dollar Value of All Books Read: $622
Number of Different Authors Read: 92
Top Genre: Romance

Goodreads Stats

These stats encompass all books I read the past year. It includes all of the KU books from the previous stats, plus books I read in other formats.

Longest Book Read: Those Three Little Words by Meghan Quinn
Shorted Book Read: Taken by the Cyborg by Ada Stewart
Average Book Length: 194 pages

Least Shelved Book: Mating the Monsters by Ada Stewart
My Average Rating: 3.9 (out of 5)
Highest Rated on Goodreads: A Monster’s Heart by Lynnea Lee

Miscellaneous Stats

I used a Goodreads export of my shelves and then used that to get these stats, which are just fun things I like to see. It took a while, which is why I’m posting this a whole month into 2023.

  1. I love it ❤ I did the same thing with my Goodreads stats, but you had way more patience than I did by assigning all those genres! I just got frustrated with the 2022 data and decided to do a better database for 2023.

    Any bookish resolutions for 2023 that result from seeing your 2022 stats?
