Welcome to the 2015 edition of my reading list. Since starting this list at the end of 2010, each year has brought new tweaks to help me keep track of what I read. In addition, I’ve set goals for the number of books I’ve wanted to read and incorporated the Goodreads Reading Challenge to help motivate me. However, after missing my goals last year thanks to the happy arrival of my first grandchild (among other distractions), I’ve decided not to set any numerical reading goals for 2015.
Instead, my goal will be to take my time and enjoy what I read, and to do a better job of sharing it. I plan do my best to write a sentence or two about what I read, either here on on Goodreads. Given my track record I’m not sure if I can pull it off, but I will certainly give it a go! Wish me luck!
Happy Reading in the New Year!
[UPDATE] Continuing a downward trend, I read even less in 2015 than I did the year before. I don’t know what 2016 will bring, but I would like to read a bit more. No goals, no pressure; I just want to get back to doing something I enjoy. I’ll be putting up a reading list for 2016; hopefully I will be able to populate it!
