This is going to be a very brief and non-very-fantasy-focussed post, but I’m curious to hear about other people’s reading and book buying habits.
For interest’s sake, I decided to work out stats on what format I read my books in last year (with the help of Goodreads). Here is the spread:
Hard copy 32%
So obviously I’m a big audiobook fan, and I’m not that into eBooks – I guess I spend too much time during the day staring at screens so I’m glad to get away from them when reading. Plus I have an Audible subscription, which encourages audiobook listening. I only buy an eBook if it’s not available in audiobook or hard copy format, or if I need to get and read a book quickly (e.g. before a book club meeting).
As for the genre spread:
Science Fiction 19%
But that’s just my reading habits. What spreads did other people have? Anybody else have a year this audiobook-heavy, or are there people who’ve gone exclusively the hard copy or eBook route? All my hard copies were paperbacks, but did anyone get hard covers?
If you have your own percentages or thoughts on book formats, feel free to share them in the comments.
