So, this has been another amazing year of reading!!! Those last two months I really went to town trying to catch up! I did pretty good! I have to admit, I was scrambling around trying to get some shorter books to read (even went to the library for that purpose!) since I didn't have any good short or YA books on my TBR shelf, so next year I am going to only read off my TBR shelf, and since, like I said I don't have any really short ones, I think I am not going to be reaching a 75 book goal in 2012. i'm pretty much not even gonna try. I have a list of 65 already written up that I want to get finished by years end, but a few of them are pretty lengthy, like Don Quixote and #'s 3 and 4 in the Sword of Truth series. So, I am just going to try to get through that list and if I do and can read more towards the 75 book challenge then great but if not, eh oh well, as long as I try to knock quite a few off my pre-chosen list of 65. So, there are my goals for 2012! Do you have any reading goals?
