Books read in 2011

129 this year
made up of:
107 - fiction
22 - non fiction

I also found it interesting to see what sort of books (other than just fiction or non fiction) I have been reading. I found that:
16 books were published in 2010
14 books were published in 2011
61 books were published before 2000 of which 34 published before 1950

23 books were Ebooks
7 books were read for a book group
I read 14 Virago books
and
5 Persephone books
That certainly seems to confirm that I am reading fewer new books these days.
