2021: Reading Year in Review + Stats

This post is extremely late, but we’re going to ignore that fact because at least it’s done!

Essentially, even though we’re well into 2022, I still wanted to do my annual look back at my reading from the past year by the numbers. These stats offer a comparison point for past and future reading years, and I always find them interesting, even if this post maybe isn’t as fun for me to create as my favorite books of 2021 post.
