Reading challenge update time!
Mid-Year Reading Challenge Update
We’re more than halfway through with 2015!! How this is even possible, I have no idea.
But that makes it a good time to check and in see: How many books have you read this year? Will you reach this year’s reading challenge goal?
So far this year, I’ve read 66 books out of my goal of 100. According to Goodreads’ tracker, I’m still “on track” and set to reach my goal (unless I somehow fall behind).
A few other stats:
- New Series: 24
- Contemporary: 23
- Sequels: 11
- ARCs: 56
- Unrated books: 4
Two things: One, I included the number of ARCs to keep accountable and transparent and in accordance with FTC guidelines.
Two, “unrated” books” means that I either skimmed so much of the book that I decided not to give a formal review or I completely DNF’d it.
The fact that this number has risen to 4 when in the past it’s been zero or two has to say something about my reading habits. I think my ability to stick with a book I’m not feeling has taken a sharp plunge.
Have your reading habits changed over the years? And your tastes and preferences?
Long-time blog readers know I used to read fantasy and scifi exclusively. Now I read a healthy number of contemporary books as well. I love that I’ve expanded my range of books – I honestly feel more enriched and balanced that way.
Next up: classics I’ve been avoiding my whole life.
