So, ten books behind has me anxious and I’m going to try and spend more time reading…….


Have a great day everyone and thanks for reading!!


  1. After two years of a semi-reading slump because of my kid’s and my health issues a s having to come to term with diagnosis…I set my goal at 30 this year.

    I raised it to 50 but I’m going to raise it again.

    I totally understand the slacker feel. It was so hard for me to get into reading when I was dealing with getting diagnosis and then trying to accept things.

    You will get back on track. You’re still doing great!

  2. WOW! I’m so far behind you Susan! Blogging takes a lot of time as well as beta reading πŸ˜‰ Congratulations!

  3. You are doing really well so far! I do find blogging takes a lot of time away from reading. I set my Goodreads goal at 52 each year, 1 book a week which I know I can achieve pretty comfortably – so then I don’t pressure myself into reading more or reading faster. (although I do still feel I’ve not done well when I only read one book in a week… I have to remind myself that is ok!)

  4. My reading has gone down every year since I started blogging – eventually I’ll reach a point where I have nothing to blog about! Blogging is great fun, but it eats into reading time hugely. Two heads are the answer… πŸ˜‰

  5. Well done. That sounds like good stats to me. 175 is a lot of books! I’m 7 books ahead of schedule apparently but I set a low bar of 30 books (I’ve read 18 of them). It’s all just a bit of fun and I don’t stress about it. 55 books read already is amazing.

    1. I’m actually trying to cut back a bit to do other things. I’m happy as long as I have something to read that I can enjoy. Between NetGalley, my local library’s ebooks and freebies on Amazon, I’m never short of a book.

  6. I could have sworn I replied to this! I’m sitting at 43 completed. I’m almost done with 44. I’m doing pretty well considering I have six kids that suck up my time! πŸ˜€

    1. I have kids in music and also physical and occupational therapy. So, I read while I wait on them! πŸ˜€ If I weren’t a speed reader, I’d not have read so much this year since they keep me so busy!
