Bookworm Report, June 2006

I must confess, for a while I thought Word Nerd was going to read more books than me this month. But I'm sure I beat her on the page count. That counts for something, right? One of my email loops clued me into a great, new to me author that appears twice, but accounts for almost 1,600 of my pages. Diana Gabaldon has a wonderful series set in the Highlands of Scotland. But more on that later.

The one that was the most frequently read was Allison Brennan. I kept seeing her name everywhere. It seemed like every time I turned around I was running across an interview, a blog post about her or written by her. It's no wonder when I realized that she released three fantastic thrillers in an extremely short period of time. More on those later too.

Bookworm Review
Year Pages Books
2001 3,375 7
2002 1,975 5
2003 2,560 7
20042,608 6
2005 4,435 13
2006 3,386 7

For the year, I've read 62 books, or 21,394 pages, which averages to 10 books a month, or 3,566 pages per month, and an average book length of 345 pages.

I'm still working on some non-fiction titles, along with continuing two of the series I started this year. In all, my reading has been more varied than in the past. And I know that I'm not the only one.
