I stressed myself out a little bit with 2017′s goal of 125 books. Sure, I succeeded, but I was always worried about it. What happened when I got sick? When I made a lot of weekend plans? When I was traveling? If I got stuck in a really bad book slump? If I wanted to tackle a thousand-page monster?
For 2018, I’m taking it back to my original goal of 100 books. I think that’s a good number that’s just enough of a challenge to keep me going while still being achievable enough that I won’t live in a constant state of anxiety. Who knows, maybe without the added stress of meeting that lofty goal, I’ll actually read more books. We’ll see at this time next year, I guess.
As always, you’ll be able to track my progress in the sidebar widget and on Goodreads.
