I finished The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck recently and added it to Tier 2 of my Best Novels list, “Incredible Masterpieces”.
Like always, Steinbeck has crafted incredible characters and woven a story around them that makes their character exploration incredibly natural. He is the absolute epitomy of “show, don’t tell”.
That puts three Steinbeck novels in my first two tiers.
Man do I love Steinbeck.
I like stats. Here are some from 50WS in 2014.
Unique Visitors: 56,000+
Pages per Visit: 2.21
Time per Visit: 2:19
There were slightly fewer unique visitors than 2013, but more pageviews, more pages per visit, and longer average visits.
This tells me that there are more returning/regular readers now, which is great, and is more important than getting lots of brand new, one-time visitors.
Here’s to more growth in 2015!
I got really excited last night because our last tenants left behind a little bookshelf that somewhat matches the ones I already had in my office.
I’m not sure what that says about me.
