It’s that time of year again…Goodreads is going to start their yearly reading challenge and I need to set my book goal for the next 365 days.
Last year I did really well. My goal was 150 books and I managed to read 168. This year I don’t know that I’ll have as much time I can devote to reading. Since I’m a Netgalley reviewer I have a certain number of books that I review for the site, plus all the ones I read on my own – which are many, let me tell you!
Reading challenges have been dear and near to my heart ( and mind!) since I was a kid. I was that student who never balked when the teacher gave out summer reading lists and challenges, and then required proof you read anything in the form of book reports due day 1 of the new school year.
Yeah, I know. Book nerd was a term invented for me.
As an adult, I still love the thought of a reading challenge and the rush that blows through me whenever I can add another finished book to the tally.
So……200 seems like a few too many. Maybe halfway between 150 and 200, so I think I’m going to set my challenge at 175 books this year.
Check back in 2019 and see if I’m still alive and if my eyes haven’t fallen out of my head yet!
