Hour 20 – stats and numbers

Hey welcome to the last sixth of the readathon. My name is Flavia and I am a reader from Germany, you can find me on twitter @misselectia or Instagram and Youtube at flaviaaalouise.

I’m a huge statistics nerd and love to track my reading. Yearly, monthly but also specifically for readathons.

I track everything from pages read to the number of books on my tbr as well as diversity and location of purchase.

How do you feel about tracking? Is it something that stresses you out?

Or does it warm your heart like it does mine?

I also want to mention that there is so much you can track. If pages and time read make you feel bad, maybe try cups of tea/coffee or maybe even time spend with self-care.

I hope you’re reading is going well and even if it’s not, don’t beat yourself up. And always remember to be kind to yourself.

  1. I started using Moleskine’s book journals a couple of years ago, but last year I started upping my tracking game when I discovered that someone at the Book Riot site made a Google Sheet Book Tracking list as a part of their Read Harder Challenge. Thanks to that, I can now see how long it takes me to finish a book, how many pages I read on average, and see how I desperately need to read more diverse authors.

  2. I’m a statistician and analyst by trade so I LOVE tracking things! This time I tried not to put too much pressure on the reading part and tracked fun stuff like what I ate and how much water I drank 😂
