I’ve set myself a task of reading 250 books this year

I’ve done the Goodreads challenge every year since I joined as a member in 2011. My stats have been a little up and down since then. By the looks of it, I’m either getting more generous or I’m finding more books that I absolutely LOVE. ūüėõ Here’s the basics:

reading-challenges-2012-2014-2015-2016

(Unfortunately, if you peek at my profile, it now says that 2013 is incomplete by one book! Probably because I re-read that book in 2014 and they’re nasty about re-reads. Thankfully, I still have the screenshot proof that I completed that challenge, so I’m sticking with that.)

Books not included on Goodreads:

All We Have – B.J. Scott (3)

NOTE: When I read a boxset, I also mark the individual stories, because I’ll be copying my¬†reviews to each individual story, so Goodreads will count each book as though it’s been read.

Are you doing any challenges this year? Let me know.
