The year is already a QUARTER done (!!!! =O!) so this seems like a good time to evaluate my book challenge progress.

Goal: Read 10% non-fiction.
Progress: 14/54 books read so far are non-fiction. I am CRUSHING this. :D

Goal: [community profile] 50books_poc challenge
Result: 10 read so far. This could use a little work -- at this point I should have read 12 or 13 books to be on track -- but it's not far behind, I feel like I can make this work.

Goal: Read 50 books out of my Goodreads TBR list.
HAHAHAHA. My TBR's a monster...even as I make faltering attempts to read it down it grows ever larger...I will never be caught up...and anyways I've read 9 books so far so like [community profile] 50books_poc I am behind but not irrevocably so.

I also have a SECRET new challenge that I shall discuss later when I have made enough progress to evaluate whether it shall be something to be proud of or add to add the ever growing failed goals list. It is currently on track though! Overall I feel like if I read with just a little more focus I will totally be able to manage every book goal I've set this year.
