Total books dropped in 2016, but average pages per book increased sharply; with the result that overall I read about the same number of pages per day as 2015. A lot of that's due to my reread of the Jack Ryan series, and the fact that I discovered Colleen McCullough. Two of the books I read in 2016 were over a thousand pages long, and a total of 26 were over five hundred pages each. (!!)

In other stats: only 3/100 were non-fiction, this time; 16 were re-reads, about consistent with last year; and 6 were graphic novels, ditto.

To continue last year's additional analysis, 83/100 were identified as part of a series or creative universe of some kind (such as Star Wars). And in terms of genre, 69 of the novels fell under the SFF umbrella (scifi, epic fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk, etc.); 20 I would categorize as mysteries or thrillers; 9 were regency romance; and 6 were other historically-set novels (O'Brian, L'Amour, McCullough, et cetera).

So here we go, embarking on Year Eleven of book tracking!

Book stats through #58 include: 16 rereads, 3 non-fiction, and 5 graphic novels.
