This year I opted to sign up to read just 75 books for the Goodreads 2015 Challenge, and I’ve reached that number already. You can have a look at the books I’ve read this year here.
In previous years I had signed up to read 100 books in the year, but I found myself being under pressure to reach my goal. As the days in the year began to run out I found myself choosing slim volumes so that I could finish them quickly and be more likely to reach that 100 target.
I didn’t want the same thing to happen this year, but as it happens it has been a much quieter year anyway, with more time for reading. I’m now planning to indulge myself in more classics, which are often thick chunksters – Trollope here I come! But I’ll still be reading whatever comes my way that I fancy the look of, and trying to read a lot of my own books as I daren’t count how many I have unread at home. Oh and of course I’ll be reading more Scottish books for the Read Scotland 2015 Challenge.
Did you sign up for the Goodreads Challenge? If so, do you think you’ll reach your goal by the end of the year?
