The ratings for the books I read broke down as follows:
- 5 stars - 26 books
- 4 stars - 44 books
- 3 stars - 30 books
- 2 stars - 2 books
When I counted the number of indie books I read this year, I was astounded to find that HALF of the 102 books were indie published! I didn't set out to read so many indie books. Some of them were books written by other indie authors I got to know, and some I picked up not knowing they were indie. It just shows how far the indie publishing business has progressed in the last couple of years.
In case you're interested, the ratings for the indie books were:
- 5 stars - 9 books
- 4 stars - 24 books
- 3 stars - 18 books
For the Authors A to Z challenge, the average score was an even lower 3.73, broken out as follows:
- 5 stars - 5 books
- 4 stars - 10 books
- 3 stars - 10 books
- 2 stars - 1 book
That shouldn't be a surprise since I read some books as part of the challenge that I normally wouldn't read.
In my next post, I'll list my top ten favorite books of 2013. Stay tuned!
