A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara
post image

A little bit of "light" reading over the Christmas break. I started each of these books in 2016, but they've taken me a while to get through because of the nature of the content, especially #ALittleLife, which has been heartbreaking to read.

Rissreads Enjoying your break? I'm having a fabulous time so far! I'm looking forward to the 24hr reading challenge starting tomorrow. Any excuse! 🤣 3y

clarissap83 @Reggie It took me three years to read, on and off. I think that says it all! 3y
Rissreads Do tell!!!!! What new books? I got a kindle for when I travel from my kids. 3y
clarissap83 @Rissreads ohhh, that's great news!! I got The Secret History - Donna Tartt and All the Light We Cannot See - Anthony Doerr. 3y
Rissreads Both of those are fantastic books! 3y

The joy of having both the print and #audiobook version of a book is the ability to keep reading “hands-free”. Trying to finish wrapping presents, writing cards and clean up my office. 8 books to go before my #2019ReadingChallenge is a wrap.

Cosmos_Moon I LOVE Hugo! 3y

Woohoo, I did it! It was a big push in November and December to get there but I pushed myself and made it. I think I will set my goal a little lower next year. #2019ReadingChallenge

I passed my #readingchallenge goal of 100 books a while back--but I always like setting the number at a doable target so that I don't focus on the number so much that I worry about going after long books or riding out the occasional reading slump. #2019ReadingChallenge

Thanks for tagging me @DannyHattan ! I'm tagging @sebrittainclark @ChasingOm @LibrarianRyan and anyone else who wants to take part!

MicheleinPhilly I do the same. The last few years I‘ve been setting it at 50 so I can just forget about it. 3y
rachelsbrittain @MicheleinPhilly yeah, I realized stressing about a specific number wasn't actually helping me read more / better / widely-- go figure 😂 3y
LibrarianRyan Ill post in a bit. 3y

#2019ReadingChallenge Goal was 100. So far this year I've read 163 books. I put dates on all of my books, but for some reason this total is way off. Has anyone else noticed that?

My goal was 100 books this year. I'm trying to figure out a realistic goal for next year. I want to chip away more at my Classics Club list---those always take me longer---and my youngest is beyond picture book stage now, so I won't have as many of those to pad my list. Always a balance between too few to be a challenge and so many that I despair...

I‘m pretty happy with my reading stats for 2019.

I usually set my goal at 120 books (10 books a month) and I sometimes exceed that and sometimes don‘t.


If you use GoodReads, feel free to post your results!

jb72 That‘s great! 3y

#2019ReadingChallenge @DannyHattan

I may not have read that many books, but I met my goal and then some, so I'm proud! Next year will be about reading the books I already own in my TBR pile, and donating more to my local library! I tag @ChaoticMissAdventures ☺️

ChaoticMissAdventures I love realistic goals that you can crush! Great job. Hope that you got to some you really loved. 3y
rachelsbrittain Reading the books you already own is always the real challenge 😅😅 3y
dainarmb @rachelsbrittain 🤣 don't I know it. We can do it! 3y

gradcat Omigod! Congratulations, woman! I think that is an outstanding achievement! You go! I‘m going to follow your lead and try to do better for next year. I‘ve noticed that when I manage to put my mind to it, and let go of the distractions, I can really get lots of reading done! I‘m almost finished with my Booked2019 reading. Yay for you!! You‘re my role model!! 🥂♥️ 3y
EadieB @gradcat Wait until you see @Andrew65 totals! 3y
gradcat @EadieB Are you kidding? His are more than yours?? 3y
EadieB @gradcat He was at 263 on 12/18 and still reading! 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB Just finished book 264 yesterday, and got 8 minutes Audio left on book 265, and close to finishing 2 others. And just finished for the term. 🎄🎅🎯🍾🥂🤯 😴 💤 I would hope to get to somewhere between 278 and 280 before midnight on New Year‘s Eve, other circumstance allowing. So far Read 110,154 Pages this year but don‘t know how with such a difficult 2019 job wise! @gradcat (edited) 3y
Andrew65 @EadieB Although I would guess Eadie has read more hours than me in 2019 looking at her #24B4Monday times each month. @gradcat 3y
gradcat @EadieB @Andrew65 You guys put me to shame—I‘m so embarrassed! Embarrassed 😩 3y
