Ah, Goodreads, what would life be without you? If you know books, you are very likely to know about Goodreads, and you probably know what I mean. Anyway, one of my favorite things about Goodreads is its yearly reading challenge which is very simple: you just enter the number of books you want to read each year and whenever you finish a book you enter it to Goodreads and you have a countdown towards your reading goal.
Well, since 2011 I have entered numbers into this system. I failed miserably trying to read 52 books in 2011 and 2012, so I opted for 30 books in 2013. I read 31 books. Thus, I became more confident and put in 52 again in 2014. This time around, I read 59 books! YAY! So for 2015 I had 60 books. I barely made it through that, but I succeeded. And so at the beginning of 2016 I thought… let’s do 100 books! I have no idea what possessed me.
