I AM AFRAID.
I’m afraid my reading addiction is on its way to be cured by itself!!!
Why am I saying this? It’s a fact. Look at my previous book challenges. I’m on the decline.
In 2013, I managed to read the enormous and almost unbelievable total of 526 books. That’s right. More than a book a day. And you know Goodreads doesn’t count the eventual re-reads. 2013 was the year I discovered romance novels, so it could be I felt extra voracious and greedy.
In 2014 things were already recessing slightly, with a little over 420 books read. I know, we’re still on a more than a book-a-day average. (I’m well aware of my addiction. Not that I think it is a problem.)
2015 ended on a good note for me, I observed I chose quality over quantity but with a total read of 261 books and a 3.8/5 average rating. This is half what I was reading 2 years ago!
Could it be possible I’ve set an unattainable goal in 2016 with 300 books?
I can’t imagine reading less than this year, I’ve been busier than before and maybe even moodier than usual.
All of this isn’t good for my growing TBR pile (the 3 of them, lol) so I’m setting up my 2016 Goodreads challenge to 300 books, hoping to fulfill it and more!
