Differences this year: I have a group of friends that I love, and I do quite a bit with. I have a roommate to share Period Drama watching with. I try to attend 3 different wards’ activities. I went on 2 huge vacations that were so jam-packed of stuff, I barely had time to read! (Even bought a Nook for the purpose and it didn’t help.)
So, please: applaud me for reading less!!
Picture Books Goal: 250
Picture Books Actual: 251 (100%). Whew. Barely.
Audio Goal: 50
Audio Actual: 41 (82%). I blame this on the fact that I read 2 very long Dickens books, and 5 Dickens total—4 of them in audio!
Adult Goal: 20
Adult Actual: 28 (140%)
YA Goal: 40
YA Actual: 43 (108%) Wow. I really went down in my reading goals everywhere! I’m surprised I didn’t read more YA.
JF Goal: 40
JF Actual: 36 (90%) I think this is the first year I’ve tracked JF separate from JP, so I think I did well here. And I’m using this as an excuse for why I read less YA….
Nonfiction Goal: 20
Nonfiction Actual: 20 + 5 Juv titles that were less than 80 pages (125%)
Rereads: 5. Sort of. Two of those were the same book (The Book of Mormon) and one of those was a book I read ~1/2 of in college, but always wanted to finish so instead of picking up where I left off I started all the way over from the beginning. 500 of those pages were new to me!
10 books * 10 categories Goal: 100
10*10 Actual: 93 (93%). This challenge was so much harder than it seemed it would be. And I was 1 book away in 2 of the categories! Oh yes. It really should say 94. But I have recounted 3 times and cannot find where I am missing a book. Oh well.
Total Books Goal: 350
Total Books Actual: 359 (103%)
Pages Goal: 35,000
Pages Actual: 32,854 (94%) (Even though my goal was less, and I read less—I still completed the same % as last year!)
