What did I read in 2010?

In 2009 I started keeping track of what books I read, what genres they were, and what I thought about them.  I have weird bouts of organization like that.  2009 was so much fun that I repeated it for 2010 and intend to do the same in 2011.

I thought you might find this information interesting.  I also have weird bouts of egotism.

Total Books Read 2010: 51
Change from 2009: -5

Of those:
17 were Fantasy
7 were Mystery
7 were Science Fiction
4 were Thrillers
4 were Nonfiction
3 were Romance
2 were Historical Fiction
2 were General Literature
1 was Horror
1 was Steampunk
1 was Young Adult
1 was Graphic Novel
1 was Satire

Genres that went up/were added: Science Fiction, Nonfiction, Thriller, Steampunk, Young Adult, Satire, Graphic Novel
Genres that went down/were removed: Fantasy, Mystery, Romance, General Literature, Horror, Epic Poetry, Humor, Adventure

The biggest trend I noticed is that I read a lot more science fiction this year, so it took numbers away from fantasy and mystery which tend to be my main reading genres.

35 Books were mine (9 were Kindle e-books)
14 were from the Library
2 were borrowed from Friends/Family

Average Rating: 3.31 (out of 5)

Top Rated: (Ignoring Agnes and the Hitman and Howl’s Moving Castle which were rereads)
Hound of the Baskervilles (5)
Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre (4.5)
Stories of Your Life and Others (4)
Crocodile on the Sandbank (4)
The War of the Worlds (4)
Leviathan (4)
The Book of Lost Things (4)
