☀Daily Book Chat #6:☀ Reading Stats....Do You Have Yours Today?

 Hello everyone! Welcome to my  ☀Daily Book Chat☀ where I do some SERIOUS discussions that fellow book fans will get a kick out of and relate their thoughts about the subject to other book fans!

Today's discussion question is"Reading Stats...Do You Have Yours Today?"

Reading Stats?  
Just what the HECK are reading stats?

Well, if you must know, reading stats are either graphs or little word formats that helps you keep track of all those troublesome books you read every year.

Want to know what year the book you've read was published?  ADD A PUBLICATION DATE!

Want to know when you read the book?  ADD THE YEAR YOU READ THE BOOK!

Want to know what author or artist did the book? ADD BOTH AUTHOR AND ARTIST'S NAMES!

Want to know what genre the book you've read is?  ADD THE GENRE!

To be frankly honest with you, I didn't start using the Excel spreadsheets for my book stats until the year of 2017 (yeah, this year) and after I started using Excel to help me organize the books I've read for this year, I had to ask myself...


My Very Own Book Spreadsheet for 2017!!!

I mean, with using Excel spreadsheets, I was able to put down some information about the books I've read and therefore, it will make it much easier for me to do mid year and end of the year book stats without having to look at my Goodreads "Read in 2017" list and figure out exactly what ratings I gave each book and what genre they each were.  Also, I enjoy the pleasure of just checking out the books I had read during the year and seeing which books were my favorites and which books were not my favorites.

So, I ask this of you, my fellow book bloggers: Do you also have a spreadsheet or a Microsoft Word document where you keep track of all the books you have read during the year so it would be easier for you to do your own monthly or yearly book stats?

Oh yeah and one more thing....



  1. I kind of wish I had something like this, but I'm honestly afraid I wouldn't keep up with it all that well. I'm terribly disorganized and I tend to give up on things that take too much organizational brain-power. I think it's fantastic if you can do it, though!!

    1. That's alright! I like doing this because it helped me get more organized with the books I'm reading!
