Summary of 2022 Reading

I always keep statistics on my reading and one of the sites I track it on gave me some additional information that I will share.
Total books read was 102, much less than the previous few years. I would have to go back more than 20 years to get a number lower than that of 2022. 
Total pages read was 29,073.

Other insights
Storygraph analyzed some things that I hadn't before and I found it very interesting
One thing it looks at was the mood of the books. Lighter books moved the line up. My graph had a definite upward slant to it.
I could also see from another graph that I went through obvious cycles this year in reading and not reading, with the line undulating up and down.
My longest read this year was only 544 pages, while the shortest was 24 pages, and my average length came in at 287 pages.
