January reading stats. Haven‘t figured out how to make these graphics pretty, but I‘m happy with the stats themselves 😁

This was my #doublespin for Jan, finished this weekend. It's a deep dive into data analytics of literature - classics, modern, popular fiction, fan fiction. Really engaging and surprisingly funny. @TheAromaofBooks

I've just started on this one, and it's a really fascinating and intuitively “right“-feeling idea: Google searches tell us things that people never will, even with careful polling. I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm also doing well with #BookSpinBingo; honestly considering aiming for a blackout. I've read 20 books so far this year, not all of which are counted here (I excluded short books).

For my birthday - in September - Mr K got me a bookshop lock-in experience at our little Indie! It definitely accounts for my mid year reading spike! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

wanderinglynn That sounds like a fun experience! 1mo

I've been working this week on getting my #bulletjournal ready for all the 2023 reading challenges and in the process updating 2022 challenges. I kinda forgot about this one but managed to fulfill most of the prompts. Looking forward to #LGBTQBookBingo2023 and being more mindful of the prompts from the get go ☺️🌈

While interesting, I‘m not really sure what to take away from this book. Things are often more interconnected than one might think? The key to research is a good dataset? I‘m glad I finally gave this a listen, but I have a feeling I‘ll be forgetting most of it very soon 🤔 #rolldecember pick @PuddleJumper

Though this book is over 15 years old now, and much of the information contained is either out of date or has been so widely discussed as to make it well known, it still remains relevant, in its way. You can still learn that analyzing statistics comes down to asking the right questions.

#thestorygraph added some new stats in - you can now see stats for your owned books exclusively. I don‘t actually have all of my owned books in #storygraph - but I‘m digging the fact that what I do have tracked shows I‘ve read 50% of what I own. It‘s a nice fantasy 😂😆🤣

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian Ooh I'm gonna go check this out thanks for the tip! 3mo

Tahlia_Reads_And_Knits Where is that stat? I can‘t find it… 3mo
Eyelit @Tahlia_Reads_And_Knits you have to go to your owned books page (go to your profile and then click on your owned books link) and there should be a pie chart icon next to owned books title at top of page 😃 3mo
Tahlia_Reads_And_Knits Ohhhhh. Thank you! That is so very cool! 3mo
