Every year, I have enjoyed entering the Goodreads Reading Challenge. Even more so, I enjoyed completing it. Some years, exceeding it.
My record so far.
2011: 56 BOOKS
I wrote a post about all the book I read that year, with ratings: Reading Challenge Completed
2012: 64 BOOKS
Another post that includes all the titles, with ratings: 2012 Reading Challenge
2013: 60 BOOKS
Again, I read more than I aimed for. The post with the titles and ratings are here: 2013 Reading Challenge Completed
Before you get me wrong, I’m not telling you this to brag. I have said it before and I will say it again: I enjoy reading and I’m a pretty fast reader, too. But I know many bookworms who do 100-200+ books/year. Mine is only a small feat.
Now to the crux of the story.
I read 43 books out of the 60 I aimed for, and Goodreads tells me I’m 7 books behind schedule. Why does it even tell me that I’m a real bookworm? Sarcasm is not appreciated, thanks.
Not sure how they calculate the progress part. My thinking is this: I have a little less than 2 months till the end of the year. 17 More books to read. That makes 9 books/month to keep on the safe side. Quite a stretch!
Maybe I can pull it off. Maybe I can’t. Tough one, huh?
What do you think? Will I finish reading 60 books by the end of the year?
P.s. Whichever side you lean on, do add me on Goodreads: Elena. Let’s be friends and stalk each other’s readings!
