2016: My Year in Reading

Check out my 2016 Wrap Up post to see how I did!

***************************ORIGINAL POST***************************

Because I very much like to push myself to somewhat unachievable heights, I’ve set my 2016 Goodreads Challenge to 95 80. As in, 95 80 books. The previous year my goal was 35. And I read 85 books. So, yeah. Hardly seems like I could aim for 50 books this year when I managed 85 books AND school last year, right? Though to be fair to myself, I aimed low last year because I planned to read a lot of chunksters. And I did (though not necessarily the ones I thought I was going to). And then some. So…maybe I’m out of my mind, but I’m going to aim for 95 and still read whatever the hell I want, including chunksters galore. And hopefully I’ll have enough skinny books in the mix to even things up at the end.

As for pages, the goal this year is 31,110. Last year was 13,870 and I managed 28,667, so fingers crossed. That, at least, should be doable.

As per usual, my reading progress will be listed below. 😀

So, here’s my current status:

Books:     120/80
