The One About My Reading Challenge
For the past four years I have been challenging myself to the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I believe for the first three years I challenge myself to read 150 books. The official Goodreads Challenge is 100 books. The first two years of the challenge I did not make my 150 book goal. In fact the second year of the challenge I was a maddeningly 2 books shy of that 150, and I remember reading to the wee hours of the morning on many of the nights leading up to New Years Eve.
Last year however, I met the goal. Not only did I meet that goal but I think I ultimately read like 168 books.
<<Pause For A Sec>>
I am trying to go and see if I can find how many I read... hmmm... wasn't easy to find on my phone. But I am pretty sure of that final number.
This year I am on book 92 of 160. That's right, I decided since last year was so easy- maniacal laugh because it wasn't that easy- that I was going to up my traditional 150 goal. At my normal rate of reading I need to read a book every other day. At this point. I have 148 days left in the year, and 69 books to go. If my math is right, and honestly it might not be- because maths. I think I have this in the bag. I need to finish a book every 2 days to get to 160.
Actually having put some time into thinking about this, I might make it. I was working up till this point thinking it wasn't going to happen. I think I read an article somewhere that mentioned that the average adult reads 4 books a year. So I realize if I had anyone reading this that I probably lost people awhile ago, as this is a little crazy- 160 books a year... but ya...
How do you read so much?
Favorite genre: it's a tie really between realistic fiction, and science fiction.
Wow! That was a long post, clearly get me talking about reading and I will just go on and on...
