So at the start of the year, I joined Goodreads’ reading challenge and aimed for 50 books for this year. Last year, I aimed for 100 books, but fell short by 12. Since I’m a worker drone now and might not have much time left for reading, I gave myself a significantly lower target of 50 for 2013. And I am happy to report that I finished it in less than half a year! 😀
Now, I am not sure I’ll be able to find as much time for reading in the second half of the year, so I’ll bump up my target by just 25 more for a total of 75 books. I am currently reading George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones which is quite a long novel, and I plan on reading the whole A Song of Ice and Fire series (at least the 5 published books) so that should take up a good chunk of my allocated (oftentimes stolen ;)) reading time.
