So after reaching my target for the Goodreads challenge 2 years in a row now, I decided to really challenge myself for 2018! But it’s looking very unlikely that I will meet that challenge this year. I’ve only reached just over halfway this past week and as it’s now August 20th it’s obvious that, with well over half the year gone already, I’m quite far behind. I’m hoping to read a few more books than normal on my holiday soon but holidaying with a 7 year old means that I will probably be only reading in the evenings. I do have to admit that I really am looking forward to getting away and spending a relaxing week off!
So this is how my Goodreads challenge is looking so far…
I do think in hindsight that setting my target to 300 was too much of an optimistic stretch but at the time I didn’t realise that I’d have a brand new job starting this year which has had a big impact on my reading time.
So how about you? Have you reached your halfway target? Would you rather set your target lower so you know you can complete the challenge? Or would you rather test yourself to see how far you can go? Let me know!
