why i have a love-hate relationship with excel
One of the nifty things you can do in Excel, however, is create charts and graphs. Pretty spiffy stuff when I can use it to chart my reading genres for 2011. Of course this idea came courtesy of Lisa S. She borrowed the concept from another blogger. Gotta love bloggers! That being said, I was able to take my list of books, assign them a genre and then create this chart. It sort of confirms what I already knew. I read a lot of paranormal fiction in a year. I also read a lot of mysteries. Truth be told, many of the paranormal novels I read have a strong mystery element to them. Whodunits with a vampire, werewolf or witch inhabiting the role of sleuth. So, for what it is worth, here is my chart. And as a result, I now have a spreadsheet set up to keep track of my reading for 2012.
Gotta love it when a plan comes together....even when the plan wasn't yours to begin with!
