Past Reading Totals

In years past, here are my book and page totals for reading.

2008: 18,026 pages in 61 books

2007: 8,669 pages in 27 books

2006: 22,027 pages in 74 books

2005: 14, 366 pages in 47 books

2004: 9,140 pages in 29 books

2003: 7,923 pages in 25 books

2002: 7,810 pages in 26 books

2001: 4,979 pages in 21 books

2000: 5,407 pages in 18 books*

Interesting things I can tell from this list:
  • At the end of 2005 we moved to Kansas and gave up cable tv.
  • In 2007 we discovered checking out TV shows on dvd from the library.

*estimate... I didn't start trying to figure it out until October of this year so I just guessed at to which books I'd read during the earlier parts of the year.

What happened in 2001-04? Too many little kids running around? 2006 is amazing! That is a ton of reading.

Wendy- I think once I hit 9,000 pages in 2004, I made it a goal to reach 10,000 every year. Then I'd just get on reading kicks where I was reading even more and more. From 2000-2004 we also had cable and hundreds of channels. And two babies born. But then Baby X was born at the beginning of 2008 and that was still a high number year. Jed and I laugh because when he got home from his mission he read like 18 books one year and thought that was incredible. Now we both reach way over 50 or 60 each year.
