May Reads

collage-2017-06-01For the past couple of years, I’ve signed up for the Goodreads Challenge. Each year, I seem to read more books than the year before. (Breakdown below.)

2015: 107 books
2016: 101 (A lot of online comics read, but can’t be added to Goodreads.)
2017: 100+ (so far)

I made my goal 100 books this year, and even without separating the two collections I read into individual books (one was a 6-book collection and the other was a 3-book collection), I have already reached that marker.

Does that mean I’m going to quit reading? No. Will I slow down? Possibly. This month, it already looks like I have – not because I’m actually reading slower though. I’ve picked up a few new non-fiction books that I’m switching back and forth on, and it always takes me longer to read non-fiction.

That said, I would like to read more of the e-books that I’ve purchased. I recently cleaned up my e-book library. Any books I purchased two or more years ago (most of them were freebies) that I haven’t read, I discarded from my library. Most I didn’t even remember purchasing. WTF?!? So I’m now down to… … a lot less than I was before. My goal is to read all of them this year. After that, I’d like to start seriously tackling the “to-read” list on Goodreads that I added books to. All 100 of them. Yeah… That’s a lot, and I don’t expect to read them all this year, but if I could get a few I know the library has and knock them out? Yeah…
