Here’s the GOOD news – I met my 2014 reading goal with an hour to spare. Phew! That also means that I crossed of item #17 on the bucket list – read 109 books.

Yes, this goal technically started January 1, 2014 and not March 21, 2014 in the year of 30 … but I’m making the rules so what I say goes. Here’s the fun part – stats, favorites, and the long long list of books.

I’m trying not to set too many goals for myself for 2015. I like the round even number of 100 books so that’s the goal. I also want to continue to make a dent in the books I own by have not read. At the beginning of 2014 this number was 604, NOW it’s 596 books on the shelf (that I officially know of) that I have not read.

Not too shabby considering the number of books I bought this year. 

To finish up, if you are up the challenge, I was sent this great 2015 reading challenge from a friend on Pinterest … who’s up for the challenge with me?
