This post may not be interesting for most people but I was in the mood to create something, so I decided to create an infographic (from scratch!!) on the books I’ve read so far this year. I created the infographic based on the skills I’m currently learning in class.
The infographic was actually super fun to create! Despite how simple the graphic looks, making the whole thing took longer than I thought it would. I had to slightly edit the original because the original was too long. The program I used to create the graphs is called R Studio. Basically you input the data and write a couple lines of code and then the program gives you a generic graph based on what you told it to do.
» Ratings on books are subjective. I realized that everyone has different standards on what they think makes a book “good”. What I think merits five stars, doesn’t necessarily mean everyone believes that book deserves five stars. I developed this bad habit of not reading books if it received less than 4 stars but have broken out of this habit after I started rating the books I read. I realized I miss out on a lot of potentially good books this way!
» I make a lot of time to read. I realize that everyone has different reading speeds and really, the number of books you read isn’t really that important. After documenting all the books I read, I realized that I read at least one hour a day.
» I read a lot of urban fantasy and YA fantasy. Who knew?
» I rarely check out books. All the books I’ve read this year are books I’ve bought at the bookstore, including all the e-books. I wanted to include the amount of money I spent on books but forgot. So maybe I’ll do another infographic towards the end of the year and do that calculation then! But that probably means I’ve spent at least $200 dollars on books (so far). Which sounds like a lot of money but the only thing I spend my money are on books and food, haha.

I haven’t developed my other roll of film yet. I may try to finish a couple more rolls before I take them to the developer, so my part 2 California photo diary post may not be posted until a few weeks later.
Thanks for reading <3 Hope everyone had an awesome week!
