8- Unpublished Books Read

Top Secret, all of them!

Well, It could have been better, but it could have been worse too. I'm very happy that I've managed to push myself to read 67 whole books in one year. I am proud of my number. This is more books than some people have the privilege of reading in their lifetime. I choose to be ecstatic about that instead of agonizing over the challenges I didn't finish.

I don't think I'll be signing up for more challenges this year. Instead, I'll be making a personal one to follow. Posting about that will start at the beginning of the new year. Yikes, I just realized that's tomorrow!

Tell me how you you did in your reading challenges! Did you do better than you thought you would, or feel like you wanted to do more. Share your new reading goals or challenges for this year. I'd really love to hear about them!

Happy Reading,
