Now in 2009, 2010 and 2011 I just read to read and kept track all on my own and on my blog.
In 2012 I signed up for Goodreads and they kept track for me. Not only did they keep track, but they also let me set a goal of how many books I wanted to try to read and how many I actually did read.
You can see I was sadly lacking in 2012 and 2013 and didn't reach my goal, so in 2014 I played it safe and only set a goal to read 20 books and far exceeded that amount! I'm an overachiever and they love overachievers!
Here are the books I read in 2014. I credit my online book club, From Left to Write in helping me to exceed my goal!
If I had to choose my three favorite books of the year I would choose The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb, The Divorce Papers and The Underground Girls of Kabul.
So for 2015 it's time to set a new goal. Seeing as my goal before was always 30 books and I read 33 in 2014 I'm going to shoot for 35!
Can I do it? We shall see. Regardless I love reading, I love my online book club and I can't wait to see what great books I will read this year.
What about you? Have you set your challenge?
Happy New Year!
May 2015 be filled with books that take you on amazing journeys!
