The only madness in my March this year was the fact that I only finished three (3) books! Between traveling with the baby for two weeks & various family commitments upon our return home from vacation, I did not get much reading time in last month. Fingers crossed that April is more productive bibliographically!

Total: three (3) books [completed]

📚🤞🏻👀

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego You did great! I read Becoming too, and it took longer than I thought I would to read. It's not really a book one devours. 💖📖 2mo
lauren.lerner Autobiographies are always hard for me for some reason and always have been. Add that to the fact that it‘s really not a book you devour (so well put, thank you!!), Becoming took me significantly longer than expected, @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego, but I loved it nonetheless!! 2mo

January 2019 reads roundup! Tagged book was read on #kindle. Total of ten books, far better than I could have anticipated when I set my goal of 52 books for the year. No audiobooks in January, but I tend to do more of those when I‘m doing more #audiowalking during non-frigid weather.

I‘m curious: when y‘all meet a reading goal, do you revise and bump your goal up or just keep reading and see by how much you surpass your original goal?

TheLibrarian I keep mine the same and then the following year I‘ll bump it up. 4mo
CatAndKindle I keep reading and enjoy not having a deadline. I read some of the longer books 📚 sitting on my tbr 4mo
irre I keep it the same. I usually set it lower so I don‘t have to feel stressed about it and see how many additional books I can read. 4mo

lauren.lerner That‘s what I‘ve been doing the last few years, @TheLibrarian. I barely hit 52 last year which is why I made it my goal again this year. 4mo
lauren.lerner I like these outlooks, @irre & @CatAndKindle. Definitely feels good to read above and beyond with less pressure! 4mo
