I knocked off my 50 year goal with Frankenstein :D

I love this.. I don't get to read as much as I'd like to, but recently I've put back 5 books in two weeks.. Which is pretty good for me, especially having the kids home for summer!

Well i am so sorry but I can not complete the reading goal because for me reading is more like eating a good meal or listening good music or talking to someone interesting. I do have another goal this year: to learn German (and this is a goal because I do not like learning it but I want to) and the second goal: to read Freud in German.
