I've been doing a lot of reader response posts lately, because I've been pushing with my reading in order to meet my goal of reading 50 books this year. I made it, going over by two. I know I did, because GoodReads says so.
GoodReads keeps track of my reading over the year--so long as I enter the books and remember to include a finish date. It makes a lovely graphic with all the covers of the books. Over the course of the year, it tells me if I'm behind or ahead of schedule. This year I was often behind, partly because I read some slow adult works. I'm looking at you A People's History of the United States.
In order to make my goal, I had to push this past few months, giving up my daily Zen of watching foreign TV shows to make reading time. I was not willing to approximate correct behavior on this one. Next year I'm going to set the bar a little lower. It will be less stressful to reach it, and if I go over, I can brag.
I'm not bragging this year, folks. My sister read 100 books in 2020.
