I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
For the first time ever I don‘t think I‘ll be making my challenge this year. 😭
This doesn‘t really bother because a lot of big changes happened this year, happy changes. I got a new job, went to training and just been busy. My job before I had a lot of time to read so that‘s when I did it.
How is everyone else challenge going?
Don't forget the next round of voting is tomorrow!! 📚 📖
Anyone else voted? I clearly don‘t read much of the stuff that‘s popular on Goodreads, and I‘m not as genre-fluid as I thought, I‘ve read no horror, sci-fi, fantasy or romance this year!
Goodreads choice first round voting starts tomorrow!
This happened today! 👏🏽
I reached my Goodreads goal early this year! I've always set my goal at 100 books and met it. But this year I didn't feel like I was in a reading zone for months at a time and I set the goal to a lower number. So I'm very happy that I got my bookish/reading mojo back this fall and reached the goal I really wanted to! DNFing books that weren't grabbing me helped. Now whatever I read is like icing on the cake. #bookstats #goodreadsgoal
Yesterday I was at a one-day conference for people who work with readers, which I had helped organize. Three years of work and everything went well. Whew! Our topic this time was Reading Under Surveillance. Heard lots of things to ponder. If you‘re interested,

Found something new (new to me) while futzing around on the #BookStats page on Goodreads. I've been tracking all this by hand and Goodreads has had it all laid out for me. 😁 😁
Everything I read for 2019 #goodreadssummerreadingchallenge 📚
I‘m behind 😭😭😭😭
At this pace I am on track for possibly beating my best year of 222 books read! I couldn‘t be happier with the material I am reading, as well as the pace. And joining BookTube has been a great way to engage with other readers for buddy reads. It‘s been lovely to read some intimidating books with other people, analyzing it together as we go.
I hope your reading years are going well, also!
I definitely had to kick it in gear to finish June at 50%, but I did because I‘m ridiculous and weird about my GR challenge progress. 😂
Not to brag, but I seriously underestimated how much reading time super early retirement, ARCs and access to audiobooks would contribute to my Goodreads Challenge. I am certain I can reach my goal before the end of June.
I underestimated the level of my lethargy this year 😂
