Final Thoughts

I’m proud of my reading this year, as it’s been a struggle! I’ve been in an on-again-off-again reading slump and I’d like to get off that train!

To have read 90 books, with an aim to read 100, is pretty good going. None of the analytics really surprised me, although I had thought I’d read more Fiction than Non-Fiction this year.

My love affair with audiobooks continues, it’s down on 2022 but still a significantly high number compared to the other formats. And I’m glad I’ve read so many new authors. Long may that continue in 2024.
