2019 Reading Challenge

Post by gali »

New year, new goal. How many books do you intend to read this year?

Take our ultimate reading challenge and set up a new goal on your profile. At the end of the year, you can see if your goal was met. Good luck! :)

I'm aiming for 50 books (though, if my reading keeps up at this rate (I've already finished 3 books this year, yay!) I'll surpass it). :lol:

I'm aiming low because I'm hoping to get to some of my longer to-read books (like The Divine Comedy, and the second GoT book, etc.).


And, of course, Moby Dick.
There are losses we don't move past, no matter how hard we try. Some wounds, once inflicted, bleed forever underneath the skin. All we can do is learn to live with them.

Nice! :)

I'm aiming for for 100 books, though I passed that number last year. I don't want to stress myself.

Every year I've tried for 100 or more and have only gotten about 95. This year? I'm going for 95. Maybe then I'll get over 100. :D
