Since I find myself occasionally daunted by my reading goal of 170, I have decided to do a monthly “reading goal update.” I’m hoping this will help keep me inspired and on track. So what were my goals?
- 170 books
- 25 re-read books
- Get my to-read list down from 960 to 900 (and keep it there!)
- Read some Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, and Aquinas
So far this year I have read, drum roll please, 30 books! That means I am currently 7 books ahead of where I need to be to stay on track for the year. However, since I haven’t begun tackling the Greek philosophers or early Church Fathers, I figure the lead won’t last long. The more books between me and the red, the better.
As far as re-reading goes, I’ve only re-read 1 book but Goodread’s new re-reading option has me jazzed to read more, so I am not too worried.
My to-read list is currently at 937. I’m rather proud of that. I might actually succeed at keeping it below 900 this year.
I already noted the lack of Plato in my literary diet. I suppose I should start this part of my challenge soon.
Overall, though, not a bad start, eh?
