You see that? Do you see that?! I have successfully completed this year’s goal of reading 120 books.
I initially started out the year with an ‘easy’ (for me at least) 50, because I didn’t know what my circumstances for the year was going to be. I reached 45 in about two and a half months then increased it to 60, then 70, then 85, then 90 and I think it was 110 for a while before I changed it to 120 and left it there.
See my reading list of 2016 here.
This year has been a crazy reading year for me so far. I’ve experienced books that I loved, couldn’t stand, wanted to throw out the window…hell, there were books that made me want to jump out the window.
In all honesty, I love being a reader simply for the fact that I get to enjoy all these amazing books. This is why I look up to writers. They don’t have to put their work out there but they do, and I appreciate them for it.
I’ve read a mixture of books this year, as I always do. I read some poetry, comics, novels, short stories, retellings, companions. I even stepped out of my comfort zone with a few.
I may have completed my reading goal for 2016, but the year is not yet over. Currently, I have over 12 books that I’m reading and I keep adding more every week. My new goal for the year is to get that number down to zero. By 31st December 2016, when I log onto GR, there should be that gorgeous ‘0’ in the Currently Reading section. That’s my goal now. I have a plan and I hope it works out.
Thanks guys. I know we’re all out there supporting each other. Enjoy the reading and good luck with those goals.
