The Shortest book of the year is "Yoga at the Zoo" by Tressa Ann Powers. My Longest book of the year is "Cndidate for Murder" by Lauren Carr. One was an audiobook. My average book length by Goodreads is 154.

This year Popular and least popular are some what strange by goodreads. My Most popular book is "North! or be Eaten" by Andrew Peterson which is a middle grade book or Young Adult book depending on on how you categories your books genres. My Least Popular book was "The Gingerbread Train: Santa Secret Gift" by Ann Tarpley Francesco. It a children book. It can be found in the holiday / seasonal categories.

I have read a total of 54 books and some are to the same authors. Looks to be about 48 authors give or take for all 54 books. Here are some charts to show you how many for each author the total for each one.
There are some of the top authors I read this month by number of books read.

My Top 3 Books read by author.
  1. Alba Anrango - 4 Books
  2. Mike Berenstain - 4 Books (adding two that we co wrote with his mother Jan Berenstain)
  3. Olivia Newsport - 3 Books

For my Genre of book i enjoyed this year seem to be "Literary Fiction" 21 books (35.2%). The next one is "Historical Fiction" with 9 books (20.4%), and then "Mystery" with 6 (14.8%).
My genres as I categories them are listed below. This is across all of my books read this year. Children is my top genre with a total of 21 books read. If you look above chart that would be be Literary Fiction. The next one is Historical (Historical Fiction) with 9 books read. Mystery is next with 6 books read this year. Christian and Fantasy were read by with 5 books and 4 books read this year. You can see where the numbers are 2 books are lower.

Those are my favorite to read by the way of fiction. Not in that order per say. I enjoy Children which falls in the Literary Fiction section in the above chart. Historical is the next best for me.

The authors gender for me this year was clear. I read more female authors then male. Female authors read this year is a total of 40 (74.1%), Male authors read this year was 9 (16.7%), Both  came to 3 books (5.6%) and NA came in at 2 books (3.7%). I did do this year though a pie chart to see what my percentage is more Female or Male? My key to this is using Female (F), Male (M), Combined (Both), I did not know (NA).

Almost but not quite there is my Series vs Standalone? How many books do you think you can read 23 Books in series and 22 Books that are considered Standalone. Series out wins Standalone this year. Those this year it seem almost even. How I did that is beyond me.
But how many of each for this year? I have not clue. How many did i start and not finish or got a book that put me to starting a new series. Well lets find out, By looking at the pie chart. Well it looks like I have

I wondered how many of my books came in what format? Were they E-books or Paperback or audio-book or another format. Well thanks me keeping track and Google Sheets for helping figure out the numbers to correct my spreadsheet for making the right format for each of my books for this year in 2020.

For This year of 2020, I have seem to have read more Paperbacks. I had a total of 5 different formats this year. E-Book, Paperback, Hardcover, Audio-Book and Board Book. My E-books came next after Paperback. Which you can tell by the pie chart.

Do you want to see what my Age Range was this year. Well I finally was able to get that tracked and this year I was able to get graph for my Age range.

Looks like my Top age range for 2020 is Adult with 20 Books with Children coming next with maybe 18 books total. Though the number could be different as this chart is by category of audience.
