This year I have taken on three different challenges, which I laid out in a post in December. To keep myself on track, I’m going to do a monthly update on where I’m at with each of my goals.
75100 books (Goodreads challenge)
- Read at least 25% non-fiction books
- Complete the 2018 AtoZ Reading Challenge
Goal #1: Read
75 100 books (Goodreads challenge)
I upped my Goodreads Challenge goal this month from 75 books to 100 books. I’m still 9 books ahead of schedule with the higher goal, so I think this one will be easily attained. I still plan on sneaking in some Outlander books this year. As I’ve said in the past, those will inevitable slow me down a bit.
Goal #2: Read at least 25% non-fiction books
I’m still a little behind my goal this year, but I’ve made some good progress in catching up. This year I’ve read 6 non-fiction books (15%). I’m currently listening to a non-fiction book, and I have a handful of non-fiction books in my queue.
Goal #3: Complete the 2018 AtoZ Reading Challenge
As a reminder, the goal of this fun challenge is read one book from every letter of the alphabet. Check out my original post on this challenge here.
I’ve knocked two more letters off my list this month. While I still have a ways to go, at this point I’m just reading what I want. The second half of the year I’ll make an effort to fill in letters that I’m missing.
Current state: 16/26 letters complete (67%)
