Total BEq is total "book equivalents," a metric I made up to normalize book counts across years (since books vary in page counts). BEq accounts for this variation in page length is a better year-to-year comparison of my reading than book count alone. | Year | Books | Total BEq | Total Pages | Avg Pages/Book | StdDev (Pages) | | --------------------------- | ---------:| ----------- | ----------- | -------------- | -------------- | | [[reading-list#1996\|1996]] | 41 | 32.4 | 13,292 | 324 | 155.5 | | [[reading-list#1997\|1997]] | 37 | 31.7 | 12,981 | 351 | 184.4 | | [[reading-list#1998\|1998]] | 28 | 28.8 | 11,792 | 421 | 202.1 | | [[reading-list#1999\|1999]] | 42 | 29.0 | 11,882 | 283 | 145.5 | | [[reading-list#2000\|2000]] | 33 | 35.1 | 14,371 | 435 | 278.8 | | [[reading-list#2001\|2001]] | 37 | 38.9 | 15,957 | 431 | 225.0 | | [[reading-list#2002\|2002]] | 23 | 27.6 | 11,316 | 492 | 244.6 | | [[reading-list#2002\|2003]] | 27 | 23.4 | 9,578 | 355 | 198.4 | | [[reading-list#2004\|2004]] | 39 | 34.4 | 14,096 | 361 | 176.5 | | [[reading-list#2005\|2005]] | 34 | 36.2 | 14,850 | 437 | 217.7 | | [[reading-list#2006\|2006]] | 22 | 23.5 | 9,631 | 438 | 276.7 | | [[reading-list#2007\|2007]] | 16 | 16.4 | 6,728 | 421 | 176.0 | | [[reading-list#2008\|2008]] | 20 | 20.2 | 8,622 | 413 | 202.7 | | [[reading-list#2009\|2009]] | 19 | 22.1 | 9,065 | 477 | 276.5 | | [[reading-list#2010\|2010]] | 19 | 25.1 | 10,275 | 541 | 240.9 | | [[reading-list#2011\|2011]] | 38 | 25.0 | 10,234 | 269 | 249.8 | | [[reading-list#2012\|2012]] | 26 | 22.2 | 9,118 | 351 | 287.8 | | [[reading-list#2013\|2013]] | 54 | 59.2 | 24,268 | 449 | 232.3 | | [[reading-list#2014\|2014]] | 37 | 41.4 | 16,966 | 459 | 301.1 | | [[reading-list#2015\|2015]] | 48 | 41.6 | 17,052 | 449 | 240.4 | | [[reading-list#2016\|2016]] | 30 | 35.9 | 14,723 | 491 | 239.8 | | [[reading-list#2017\|2017]] | 58 | 55.9 | 22,923 | 395 | 146.5 | | [[reading-list#2018\|2018]] | 130 | 150.0 | 61,516 | 473 | 235.5 | | [[reading-list#2019\|2019]] | 113 | 106.9 | 43,809 | 388 | 168.2 | | [[reading-list#2020\|2020]] | 88 | 88.4 | 36,240 | 412 | 232.4 | | [[reading-list#2021\|2021]] | 79 | 81.6 | 33,456 | 423 | 217.6 | | **Total** | **1,128** | **1,132.6** | **464,382** | **412** | **224.7** | \*Only complete years are listed.
