What?! Less than 2 months left to read in 2018?!

Possibly that title up there is a teensy bit overdramatic but, really, why not? It’s true, isn’t it? It’s November 5 which means there are twenty-five days in November and thirty-one in December. That’s only 56 days! Add in Thanksgiving, Christmas, my birthday…

So much to read and so little time!

(She says as if she won’t be able to read in 2019, which she will, come hell or high water.)

Anyway, to continue with my slightly manic but very serious panic about less than two months of reading left in 2018, I’ve decided to set some goals for the rest of the year. Why? I don’t know… because I can? Seems like a good enough reason, doesn’t it?

So my goals for these 56 days are…

  1. I’m currently 2 books ahead of my Goodreads goal of 60 books in 2018 so… I’d like to hit 60 by December 31.
  2. I’ve DNF’d a handful of books this year (not as many as usual, go me!) so I’d like to not DNF more than, say, 2 books the rest of the year.
  3. Cassandra Clare’s final book in The Dark Artifices trilogy, Queen of Air and Darkness, comes out on December 4 and I’m making it a goal to NOT read that book in less than 3 days, not matter how bad I want to forget to sleep or eat to read it all.

Three goals is a good thing, I think.

Yep, so that’s that. Another post meant mostly to put myself on record and, maybe somehow, stick to it because I made the goals public?

Wish me luck!
