I am going to sound ridiculous saying this, particularly because I set the goal for myself, but I am finding my reading challenge this year quite….challenging! Usually if I can’t keep ahead of the goal I lower it. Chances are I will catch up eventually, but 110 books, for example, is much easier to reach than 160. Small successes (like being a few books ahead) breeds more success. However, I’m determined not to do that this year.
170 has been extraordinarily hard. I have managed to keep ahead…but barely! I am currently at 19 new books for the year.
