2016 Recap: The Best, The Worst, and Stats That Only I Will Care About

In 2016 I decided to keep a really detailed spreadsheet of all my reads so I could write up a recap post with lots of *fun* graphs of my reading trends. However, I have recently discovered that I am a huge moron in Excel and – try as I might – I can’t make a graph correctly to save my life. (This is a crushing blow to my inner-nerd. I thought I was much smarter than I actually am. 2017 is the year of self-discovery.) So instead, I will just share some highlights and a few stats that I can conjure up with some (simple) Excel formulas.

  1. I love this! Haha, yes I too tried to make a meaningful graph in Excel a few weeks ago and abandoned the idea! Thanks for sharing your stats. Did you get a WordPress summary of your blog this year? I forget when they do that, or if they aren’t this year. Happy Reading!

    • Thanks! Yes, excel is now my nemesis haha. I was wondering about the WordPress summaries too! I always love those, but I didn’t get one this year. I didn’t see anyone else post one either. I wish they would’ve don them.
