I Passed My Year's Reading Goal!

I just passed my annual reading goal today!  I vowed to read 75 books and I've read 76 and the year's not over yet.  Lest you think I've been reading "Good Night Moon" just to get those numbers up, I've read a total of 24,798 pages. 

To say I love to read, that it's an escape I crave and look forward to every night, is an understatement.

  1. I swear we were separated at birth! I've always loved to read...haven't gotten much "pleasure" reading done this year...mainly dyslexia related books, and a few biographies on hiking the Appalachian Trail.

  2. 75 before the end of August is really a stunning achievement. And I know you don't read "Good Night Moon"! My goal is usually a book a week. Looks like you'll make 2 a week by the end of the year at this rate! Cool, Lori, really cool!

  3. Yay Lori! I love to read but I have been so lazy about putting them into Goodreads.

  4. That's very impressive Lori! I aim for a book a week, but I have periods when I don't get much reading done at all.

  5. Well done! I'm so very impressed. 75 is an amazing number. I set myself a goal of 50 books last year and the same again this year. I made it to 40-something last year and I'll probably fall short again this year too. Sigh......The trouble with me is that I need to find books that appeal to me - in terms of their subject matter/plot as well as their writing style.


Thanks so much for commenting! It always makes my day!
