A Year of Books: 100 Books in 2022

Yesterday I looked back on what I read in 2021. Today I’m looking forward to what I will be reading in 2022.

I set my annual reading goal at 104, which breaks down to 2 books a week. Even though I read 165 last year and 235 in 2020, 104 will keep me reading without making it too difficult to achieve.

But my big challenge, my biggest challenge this year is that I’ve put myself on a book buying ban.

What?!

That’s right. I will not buy any new books . . .

How Is It October 15?!

OMG. Today is October 15. The Ides of October. I just got over that it was October 1 and now here it is mid-month already.

Seriously. But it is October.

I blame Litsy (mostly).

I also blame Litsy for my exponentially growing TBR, so much so, that I put myself on a book buying ban earlier this month.

(Of course, I may have already broken that ban when I received an email today from Subterranean Press about a special edition of Kevin Hearne’s Hexed, book 2 of the Iron Druid Chronicles. I had already pre-ordered Hounded, Book 1, so I *had* to pre-order Hexed. Right?) Continue reading “Summer ’18 Reading Challenges”

I’m Way Behind on My Reading Challenge, But That’s Ok

Every year since 2011 I have participated in the Goodreads’ Reading Challenge. And every year I have met or exceeded my goal. So at the start of this year, I set a particularly big goal for myself—104 books, which meant I needed to finish 2 books every week to meet the goal.
