I had really wanted to get through 100 this year but I'm seeing now that there is no way that will happen. SIGH! Perhaps 50?

I am really hoping for 20 books. Reading has started to fall some because of a small kiddo. I read a lot to him, so maybe that's 20 "adult" books! haha

My goal is usually 100 books, but I'm pretty behind for that by this time in the year. Instead, I'll say 50. though, I can't seem to figure out how to add it to my profile.

You can set it via your UCP, but you may be too new to have the option yet. :tiphat:
Personal pronouns:She/Her

Dried leaves and broken hearts are similar enough...

Thank you. It seems likely that I'm too new for that option. I'll wait until my reviewer score goes up a bit and try again :)

It's actually based on post count. Many members aren't even on the Review Team.

You should be almost there, now. :)

I honestly forgot how many I chose for the challenge of 2019, and I have no idea where to find that number on the website, as I still find it a bit confusing... Any ideas?
As to what my ideal goal is - to read one book every week, and to write at least 2 (as I have just published my first one) :)

I wanted to read 100 books this year, but its my first time trying a read challenge. Instead of stressing myself out, I decided to lower the number to something more reasonable. I'm trying to read 50 books, and I'm a little under halfway done.

Since I am a busy mom of 2 under 3 my realistic goal will be 20 books this year (considering we are already over halfway through the year!)

Can someone explain how to set up my goal on my profile? Lol when I go to bookshelves and click on the link "set my 2019 goal!" I am redirected to my user panel, but I looked through every tab and did not see an option to set my goal :(

You do it via your UCP, but you may be too new to see that option.
