It is almost April 15. Since my taxes are paid, I can focus on looking back at the first quarter of 2016. Here's how I'm doing on my goals:
Goodreads: My Goodreads challenge goal was 50 books. As of this writing, I've read 28 books. I think I'm doing okay, there.
Modern Mrs. Darcy Challenge: I have completed 7 of 12 challenges.
Book Riot Read Harder Challenge: I have completed 14 of 24 challenges.
Read My Own Damn Books: I have read 5 of my own books, which is actually better than I anticipated.
Read 5 books over 500 pages: I have read 2 books over 500 pages. Not too shabby. Almost half way through those.
Read ten specific books from my shelf: I have read 2 of those specific books. Maybe a little under par.
Read the hard books: I have read three books I consider to have "hard" things in them, but I did not read one this month. I was sick and didn't have the nerve to steel myself for the hard things. All of the three hard books I read this year I read in January. On the other hand, only one of the five books I've DNF'ed were because it was hard.
Write reviews: So far I've averaged 2 reviews a month. I think that's an improvement over last year.
Keep Track of DNFs: I have written down all the books I've started and abandoned.
So it looks like I need to think about forcing myself through the hard books. And maybe go out looking for those. Also, I need to get on those specific books I need to read.
This was just to recap my goals and measure my success so far. It's always good to remind myself. Otherwise, I would get to December and go, "What were those goals again?"
How are your reading goals faring?
