BBH: How many books have you read this year?

Today’s question comes to us from Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews, who asks:

How many books have you read this year?

The short answer is 167, so far.

I do expect to read anywhere between 7 and 10 more, so I expect to skate in at about 175 for the year. This is by far the most books I have read in a year since I graduated from middle-grade books, back in the 70s. Before this year, the most I had read as and adult was 107, in 2016.

I read so much this year because I became disabled in January. I always said that if I couldn’t work, I would read ALL THE BOOKS.

Guess I was right about that.

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog

      1. Other book bloggers do reach numbers over 200 but I have no idea how. My goal was only 104, so if I go up closer to what I read that will be good, I guess. Maybe 175.


  1. I just completed my goal of 135, but will probably knock out at least a couple more by end of year. (Though next one queued up to start is a history, and those always take longer than novels of equivalent length. It’s ‘Boom Town: The Fantastical Saga of Oklahoma City, Its Chaotic Founding… Its Purloined Basketball Team, and the Dream of Becoming a World-class Metropolis by Sam Anderson ‘)


  2. If there is a silver lining to the cloud of disability, being able to read all the books hopefully brings some joy and happiness. I’m going to hit around 150 – 160, depending on how I count beta-reads and DNF’s! Merry Christmas x
