That was more books than I expected, but I think I‘ll do less books in 2020. Going to focus on knocking out some big books. #yearofthechunkster

thebluestocking I‘m feeling like tackling done big books in 2020 too. I‘m going to set my Goodreads goal lowish to relieve some pressure I put on myself. 💙 3w
kspenmoll Congrats! I lowered my goal for 2020 too. (edited) 3w
vivastory Congrats! 3w
Texreader Congratulations 🎉🎊🎈 3w

#WinterGames Team #ReadNosedReindeer This is it guys! It‘s going to be a new year and a new decade! Tell us your bookish goals! Put them out into the universe!

TorieStorieS I‘m going to set my Goodreads goal at 275 this year! I‘m participating in a few challenges too- like #Booked2020 and #ReadAroundTheWorld- plus I am tackling Mt. TBR again! I think it will be a great year for reading!! 🤞🤞🤞 3w
Cosyreader I always have a goal of 100 books and I‘m not changing that. I‘d like to read all of my Persephone books and I‘d also like to finish the Caraval and Scythe series. 3w

AnneCecilie As always I want to read a book a week, I have also signed up for #ReadingEurope2020 and #Booked2020, I will also participate in #YearOfTheChunkster. Further I‘m joining buddy reads of Agatha Christie‘s books and Nordic Noir 3w
CaitZ I'm going to set my GoodReads goal at 45. I like to set it low and increase it as I get close. I'm also planning on joining #ReadWithMrBook and #ReadingEurope2020. I'm hoping I can stay away from the library in January and February and just read books I own. 3w
overtheedge I hope to read some mira grant and Octavia butler series in 2020, and my reading goal is 200 books! 3w
j9brown I plan on setting my Goodreads goal as 70 (I made it over 80 this year, but I expect 2020 to be a little busier). I think I'd like to join the #readwithmrbook folks, too. And definitely read more nonfiction. If there's a bingo card or some sort of challenge for that specifically I'll be jumping in! 3w
Mogoeg I'm setting my goal as 100 books for 2020, but I am hoping to exceed it! I currently have a huge TBR pile - both physical books and books on my eReader. So going to try to stick to those for the first few months of the year. 3w

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView
I've never really done challenges other than tracking a goal on Goodreads, but Litsy is so full of them that I'm going to see what I can accomplish this year. I'm trying #Booked2020 #ReadingEurope2020 #ReadtheUSA2020 #AuthoraMonth #ReadwithMrBook and #YearoftheChunkster - but all in a sort of relaxed format where if I read a book I figure out if it matches ⬇

TheAromaofBooks the categories rather than the other day around. :-D Hoping to use these to inspire me to read some of the books already on my shelves! For instance, I've found books for 35 states just in books that I own but haven't read (or haven't read in years). We'll see what happens!! 1mo
Deifio Wish you happy reading! 😄 1mo
TheSpineView Thanks for playing! Happy Tuesday! 1mo

ljuliel Wow, that‘s great that you have 35 state books already available. Good luck 👍🏼🍀 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Deifio @TheSpineView - Thank you!!! You too!! 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @ljuliel - a lot of them are books for younger readers that I've picked up over the years and either read back in the day or never bothered to read at all. Hoping these challenges will inspire me to work through some of the books on my own shelves and only keep the ones I genuinely love. 1mo
ljuliel Good idea. That seems to be a common goal for lots of people : read what they own off their shelves first. I hope this will help you to do that this year. 1mo
Cupcake12 As a newbie.. I keep seeing #booked2020....can someone tell me what this is please? 📚 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Cupcake12 - Hey Kerry!! I'll tag you in the original post about #Booked2020 over on the page of one of the challenge's hosts @cinfhen - basically it's a year-long reading challenge. There are book categories each quarter, and participants try to read books that fit each category. There are some drawings/prizes for participants, but it is pretty low-key. The post where I am going to tag you also has a sign-up form. If you have any questions, ⬇ 1mo
TheAromaofBooks ( @cupcake12 cont'd) check with the hosts. This is my first year participating, so I'm not an expert, but hopefully the main post can get you started!! The other hosts are @4thhouseontheleft and @barbarathebibliophage Hope you can join, too!! 1mo
Cupcake12 Thank you for the tag @TheAromaofBooks there is so much going on...trying to find out what I can do and what is of interest. You‘ve been great 👍🏻 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Cupcake12 - it can all be kind of overwhelming at first!! But I have found most people on Litsy to be friendly & welcoming, so if you see an event happening, just ask what's going on & someone will get you up to speed! I have also found it helpful to follow people who are hosting events or if you see their @ on lots of event posts. They tend to be the community leaders, if you will. 😁 Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!! 4w
BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks @TheAromaofBooks for filling @Cupcake12 in about the challenge. You‘re right—there are SO many options on Litsy for 2020! 4w

Final tally for 2018.
I didn‘t meet my goodreads goal, or my #MountTBR however over half my total reads were off my TBR, and a third were over 500 pages. So not bad overall!
