Obsessed with your bookish stats like we are? Join us for the 3rd annual Statistics Survey! Posted from Brittany at Book Addicts Guide
This survey is more about checking out the facts and details behind what you read and not necessarily favorites and reflecting. Fill out and post whenever you like (my answers will be going up in late December or early January to get the full year in)! These statistics should all be for books that you read in 2016 (not books necessarily published in 2016). We have a linky at the bottom to link up your survey once it’s done! Hope you have fun!
