That's 33 books in the first quarter, approximately 12,072 pages. I say "approximately" since some of the books are unabridged audio and others are eBooks read on my new Kindle. For these books, I used the page count from the mass-market paperback if the book is available in that format, or the hardback when the book is too new to be out in paperback.

Out of the 33 books, four of them qualify as Chunksters by having more than 450 pages. 1st to Die with 488 pages, The Collectors with 544 pages, Sheepfarmer's Daughter with 512 pages, and Divided Allegiance with 522 pages. Not bad in three months!

Breakdown by Genre:
  • Mystery: 13
  • Historical Fiction: 6
  • Science Fiction: 6
  • Chick Lit or Romance: 5
  • Fantasy: 3
  • Literature and Fiction: 3
  • Young Adult: 2
Yes, that's more than 33 because I counted some of the books in more than one genre.

Breakdown by Format:
  • Mass-market paperback: 14
  • Trade paperback: 7
  • eBook/Kindle: 7
  • Unabridged audio: 3
  • Hardback: 2
