I have one more book to read in my GoodReads Challenge…and one more week to complete it. I’m right on course, but I’m wondering what should my last book be. Something that I can finish quickly – a down and dirty, just get it down, NaNo-tactic book? Or something “worthy” to end the year on?
Perhaps I’ll wait until Christmas to see what offerings (if any) have been left under the tree.
Either way, I think I’ll do the challenge again, but I’ll pare down my goal. I’ve accomplished almost a book a week and I am proud of that. Having a goal forced me to pick up a book even if I was feeling sluggish…and I’m glad I did. I discovered new books and writers, and helped me in my writing. However, I continued reading many books that I should have put down just so that I could claim them on my tally. Not really how I wanted to win my challenge. (imagine, if I’d forced myself through this, I would be doing a victory dance tonight).
I’m thinking of aiming for 30 next year. Still a lot of books, but that should give me leeway to walk away.
What did you learn from your reading adventures this year?
