2013 Goodreads Rundown [July - August]

A new year, a new and improved update post! To be honest, not much has changed for these posts except the name, but if you aren't familiar with my Goodreads Reading Challenge updates, this is where I give more detailed stats on what I've read so far this year.
My goal number this year is 90. I read over 100 last year with a goal of only 75 so I figured I would increase it a bit this go-round. My reading pace has slowed down compared to previous months. This is due to a lot of recent personal issues and problems which make it difficult to read or even listen to books right now, but I'm going to persevere as I am getting ever close to my goal.

Reading the stats: In my #/# calculations, the first # pertains only to the current months; the second # is the total thus far for the year.

  1. I'm up to 89 of 120. I'm getting there but I'm not as far as I'd like. I'm not reading as fast as I usually do but I think I will make it.

    1. That's awesome! I feel like I'm not reading as fast either, but I think I'm ahead of where I was last year. Keep up the good work! ^_^


Thank you for reading!
