Re: 2017 Yearly Goal

This just amount of books?

My stretching goal would be 100
Goal goal is 60

I also want to branch out in what I read. Maybe more biographies/autobiographies, not just fiction.

I read A LOT. 6-8 books a month is average.

1. Fates and Furies
2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
3. Faithful by Alice Hoffman
4. What Alice Forgot

I've been reading 2-4 books a month, so I'd just like to continue with that trend.

My commute is long, lol. Over an hour each way on mass transit.

I read extremely fast, 1000+ words a minute. And I read while most people watch TV, etc.

I read books in a day usually...plus I don't have kids every other weekend so I devote time to reading then.

ETA: I joke around that the only nice thing my exDH has ever said about me is this: don't ask her if she read that book, chances are she read it, and she read it in a dayChat Icon
