Mid-Year Reading Rundown

Six months down, so I thought I'd do a reading check-in...so I thought I'd go back and take a look at my reading goals for the year.  A quick glance let me know that I should probably have kept an eye on them this first six months, because now they're feeling a little out of reach.  But you know what...my goals are more like guidelines, ideals, something to strive for not to accomplish.  Over the last month I've been doing a lot of grabbing what looks good, not what I think I should be reading, and it has been freeing.  I don't ever want reading to feel like a chore.  I love it too much.

Like a total book nerd I've been keep track of what I've been reading.  How am I doing so far?  Let's see...

I've read 58 books and 44, 027 pages.

Goal 1) Read 20 adult books.  I'm at six which is four more than last year which is a TOTAL success.

Goal 2) Read a work of Russian literature.  I bought Crime and Punishment.  First step accomplished.

Goal 3) Listen to 15 audiobooks.  5 down, plus I've got one in my car and another on my phone.

Goal 4) Read 5 nonfiction books.  2 down!

Goal 5) Read all of the books on the TBR winter/spring/summer/fall lists I create.  Probably not going to happen.

Goal 6) Read at least 1 hour a day.  Hadn't been happening but starting to schedule it into my day.

Goal 7) Read at least 125 books...fingers crossed!

Goal 8) Visit 5 new libraries.  Done!  Thank you strategic planning process at work which included library field trips :)

Goal 9) Read at least 10 picture books.  Haven't even started this.  I shall talk to a Children's Librarian tomorrow.

Goal 10) Update my blog, Goodreads account, and awesome spreadsheet for every book I read.  Done!

Feeling pretty good about that number...not because I think it's a lot, but because it is a variety.  It's not just teen and it's not just fiction.  And I'm having fun (mostly).

How are you fairing on your 2015 reading goals?

Happy Wednesday!
