# of books read so far: 7

How I'm doing: I feel a little like I could have done better and read more from this list. I kept getting distracted by other juicy books. But I've read about half of my goal which was 15 books, so I still feel pretty good about that.

  1. Pretty good!! That's definitely a decent amount, and I think just getting through any number of ones we want/need to read is a good thing. This has been fun! It might be something good to keep in mind almost for all year... like every couple of months make a list and try to stick to it, at least a bit.

    1. Thanks! I'm glad you're having fun too. I was actually thinking of doing this again in the fall.

  2. Doing good! I always change what book I'm going to read next. There's just too many good ones! I can't stay focused.

    1. Thanks! I do that too. I had to make the list so much bigger than my goal just so I had tons of choice...:)

  3. Wau so much books to read? :)But how I see you are doing good. Good luck :)
