This Is Looking Like A Big Reading Year

This is starting to look like a big reading year. Not sure what to think about that. It probably means I’m not spending enough time writing, but I’m feeling more like reading right now.

Like usual, I set a Goodreads goal of 150 books. I usually read 200-300 a year, but 150 feels like a comfortable minimum to me. The number is actually completely unimportant because it isn’t a race, but 150 as a minimum based on my reading speed and the amount of time I want to spend reading feels right. Usually I hit that 150 goal sometime in July, usually at the end.

I’m at 112 as of April 19th. Pretty sure I’m going a bit faster than normal.

Sure, some of these books are smaller and I’ve even read a couple graphic novels on there which don’t take anywhere near as much time, but I’m still at around 27,960 pages for the year for an average of about 250 per book.

Regardless, pretty sure this is going to be a big reading year if something doesn’t get in the way. Might even beat my 2011 high point of 318 (89,784 pages). It doesn’t matter in the slightest, but I was just thinking about it.
