Okay, so now that it's 2012, I am going to post a thing I did last year on my blog.
Hope you enjoy :)
How many books read in 2011
I am a bit embarresed by this but I've only read a hundred...I was just really busy this year and didn't have as much time. I usually read more than this.. :p
How many fiction and non fiction?
Most of them were fiction but I read some non fiction for school
Male/Female author ratio?
About the same.
Favorite book of 2011?
The Chaos Walking books-Oh my gosh, were they good. You have to read them. By the way, these books were science fiction.
Science fiction- The Last of the Jedi books I have read so far, Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader, Episode I Journal: Queen Amidala, The Scorch Trials, Old Republic: Deceived, Coruscant Night trilogy, and A Paradise Snare

Contemporary Life- The Patron Saint of Butterflies, Speak, Hate List, The Chosen One, and Positively,
I really haven't read anything to terrible this year. Maybe some of the books I had to read for school that were kind of boring? The MenD'lee and Exodus kind of had sloppy writing.
