Well, 2014 has blown past, and I have to say, it was not as bad a year as 2013. I can’t say it was a fantastic year, but it really could have been worse. I thought I’d recap my 2014 reading goals.
Originally I’d done them as part of a swap, but when people stopped signing up, I just kept the goals for myself. I probably didn’t pay as much attention to them as I could have, given that I wasn’t reporting to anyone, but I still kept them in my thoughts.
#1 – Read 60 Books
I managed to read 78 books in 2014. Book #60 was The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. Since Goodreads counts short stories as books, the actual book length book count is probably around 70. Still. I made my goal.
#2 – Read 6 Non Fiction Books
I squeaked in with 6 non-fiction books read this year, mostly on writing, publishing, or blogging.
#3 – Start JD Robb’s In Death series
I finished the 10th book, Witness in Death, on May 13.
#4 – Read The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern
I finished it May 25. I’d heard so many good things about the book, but I was a little disappointed in it.
#5 – Read One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
Didn’t accomplish this one. I meant to, and meant to, and never read it. Maybe in 2015?
