Books I Read This Month (September 2017)

Sorry. Due to work travel I am behind schedule with a lot of posts.

Hope you enjoy seeing a lot of me on the dashboard today.

I read 33 books this month. As of today, I have read 308 books and I am still trying to hit my reading goal of 337 books this year. Next year I am going to keep my goal to 50 books. Or maybe 10. Seriously. I don't like to feel like I am being timed. 

I also realized that I totally petered out of challenges this year because I just got too busy to keep up with them. I haven't check in on the Library Challenge in the past few months. I am still marking my library books on Goodreads, I just don't have the time to go in and link the books read. I will say as of today, I read 147 books from the library, so I am feeling pretty proud.

Next year I plan on getting back to the Goodreads Horror Aficionados and The (Mostly) Dead Writers Society groups and stepping back from doing any Popsugar or any other challenges. I love our bingo and other games (obviously) so with having to track all of that, I just don't want to spread myself too thin. 

How is your 2017 reading goal coming along?
