What Is Goodreads?
Goodreads is a social cataloging website where you can sign up to record and track your reading progress. Users can create their own bookshelves and add the books they have read, mark the books that they are currently reading, or add the books that they want to read.
They can get book recommendations based on the kind of books they like. They can review books they liked or dislike. They can join groups and have discussions with fellow readers and much more.
If you are looking for a way to track the number of books you have read this year or the number of pages you have read this year, reading stats is a great feature on Goodreads which lets you do just that and more. Goodreads stats include:
- Books read year-wise
- Pages read year-wise
- Books read over the years arranged by publication year
- Books read over time
- Pages read over time
How to Find Your Reading Stats
The reading stats feature provided by Goodreads is an excellent way to track what you have read, how much you have read, and over what period of time. On the reading stats page, you can toggle between different view options to see your book count or page count.
There are two ways to locate your reading stats:
- Mybooks > Stats
- Mybooks > Your Reading Activity > Reading Stats
Below are some of the fun stats and graphs that Goodreads creates based on your reading activity, and instructions on how to locate each piece of information.

Pages Read Year-Wise
