Let's Crunch Some Numbers, Part 2: More Graphy Goodness

While everyone is preparing for festivities and planning for the new year and all of those excellent things, it's a great time to take a look back at all the good stuff that was accomplished in 2010. And as far as What Book is That is concerned, the best way to do that is with graphs!  The first round of graphy goodness went up back in July and reflected everything up until June, so these numbers reflect all the WBaT developments from July-December.  I read and reviewed a total of 75 books from July to December.

Up first is the breakdown of reviews by letter grade.  All letter grades that were used are reflected here; I had to leave out ones with a value of zero since you can only have so many slices in your pie chart with this particular generator.  Unsurprisingly, I had way more positive reviews than negative reviews.  I think it's because life is too short to read bad books- or maybe I'm getting better at picking books that I enjoy.  Either way, this is how the reviews break down.
Next is the breakdown of sources of books.  Review books slightly edged out books I own this time- maybe it's because they were the focus of the Fall into Reading Challenge this time around?  Tour books makes sense as I stopped signing up for them due to my relocation, and library books makes sense as well for much of the same reason.  Here's how it all panned out:
What an interesting, fun, and productive year it's been.  I want to take a second and thank everyone for all the laughs, conversations, and good reading.  I hope everyone stays safe and happy as they celebrate new beginnings tonight.  Here's to a great 2011 and many more after that!
