The year is almost over and this morning I briefly looked at my Goodreads stats and realized that I have read almost twice as many books as was my goal in my annual Goodreads reading challenge. 218 books this year and I might get one more in before Monday. No wonder I am constantly behind with the reviews.
Not that reading as many books as possible is really a goal in itself but I do usually set a goal for myself in the reading challenge just to not slack off. With all the media offers available, like Netflix etc, it is all too easy to get absorbed in more brain numbing activities after all.
Anyway, I have to say that I feel quite good about it. Especially after the abysmal year of 2016 when my personal problems got the better of me. That year I didn’t even manage to meet my, quite moderate, reading challenge. Oh, 2011 is the year that I started to use Goodreads for the first time by the way and that was in October that year so that year’s stats kind of doesn’t count.
