Welcome to my Goodreads Rundown post, where I give detailed stats on what I've read so far this year. To see where I'm at between these posts, you can check my Reading Challenges tab above.
My goal this year is more than I've ever read before, so I'm a little nervous but trying to stay focused on reading regularly.

Reading Challenge Update [February 2014]

Hey quirks! Welcome to my Reading Challenge Update (RCU). I'm doing a few of the same challenges as last year, and I added a couple new ones as well. I'm really excited about these challenges because challenges like these pushed me to read more in 2013, so I hope the same will happen this year because my goals are even bigger!

Unlike my Goodreads Rundowns where I give a bunch of stats, here I will just be listing the books I read during the previous month under the challenges to which they apply. To see where I am at between these posts, check out my Reading Challenges tab above.
