Lowering the Bar

I pledged to read 82 books this year to be tracked in Goodreads, and it’s only because I did 82 in 2012. I figured I could more or less read at the same pace. I was wrong. My reading progress has been mediocre since March. It picked up a few times, in short spans of time, but I was unable to keep it up. I know they say it’s not an excuse to say there’s no time, but in my case, I don’t know, there really wasn’t sufficient time. 😦

old challenge

Oh hello, old reading challenge. I screen-capped it before changing my goal. Oh 82-book goal. It was fun knowing you.

I set a more realistic challenge for myself. I have to do this for motivation, so I could tell myself, That’s only 60 books, and with 2.5 months left this year, surely you could pull off 13 books (or more!). Well, that’s my goal, that’s the hope.

new challenge

So hello to you, new book goal of 60 books! Time to hit my overwhelming TBR pile. We’ll see each other at the finish line. 🙂
