One of my favorite anal-bookish things I love to do each year is keep track of my reading. I love to see the page count, the book count… I am a total dork when it comes to charts and all the bells and whistles. I love keeping track on Goodreads each year and setting goals… however I lost track of everything this year. I recall a big reading phase in late May and all of June just to keep my mind occupied… they were books with covers of cupcakes, and buildings, about friendships and businesses – safe books for me…. nothing deep but mind occupying. I can recall bits of plot lines, but can not remember titles or authors – I am almost sure I did not review them and have no idea where to begin so they are among the missing.
In all honesty I probably would not have even tried to see where I landed on Goodreads for this year if I had not popped on there a few days ago and seen a super cool page to all the books I had remembered to record this year. That love for lists and tracking sparked and I started to go through the ones I had not reviewed yet that I could recall. And managed to come up with somewhat of a worthy year of reading :
I did not reach my goal that I set last year about this time, but I am surprised I was anywhere near it. I like to see the books that I rated high. I am not going to chat about them because honestly looking back they are all kind of blank to me (thank goodness for reviews!)
I do look forward to setting a goal for 2016. And on that subject, have you picked your first book of the new year yet? You can still join in the 2016 First Book Of The Year. Come on… you know your going to read a book….. 😉
Do you use Goodreads to track your books? Do you set reading goals?
