This year, I decided to participate in the Goodreads Reading Challenge for the first time. I figured that challenging myself to read 100 books would be acceptable since I only really had a specific window in which I could read for pleasure: over Christmas vacation, during Reading Week (while taking a break from studying for midterms, of course) and over my summer vacation.
That being said, imagine my surprise when I signed into Goodreads this morning and saw this:
Not only did I meet my goal of 100 books, but I surpassed it – with two months of summer vacation remaining!
If you’re interested, you can see the books that I read here, and you can add me as a friend on Goodreads here.
I challenged myself to 80 books, but then I read 10 little snippets that I didn’t feel counted, so I upped it to 90. I am 52 books in, and I really hope I can complete the challenge 😀
My work does not allow me to read much so I took the modest challenge of 25 books and have completed only 12 so far (however I have not mentioned the management books that I had read this year)
Seeing your 104 has motivated me, a lot
