It’s October 1, meaning only three months remain in 2019 to meet my reading goals. How am I doing?
I am slightly ahead of schedule, despite at one point being a month and a half behind. However, the Final Boss level – two big Russians — still awaits me, so no resting on one’s laurels!
TBR of Doom:
I’ve read 7 books from the Stack of Doom this year, which is on track for my minimum goal (10) and slightly behind for my hoped-for goal (12). I have also acquired many books this year, however, so the idea of progress is arguable. (Mostly they were library discards!)
Science Survey 2019
I have four categories left to fill (Flora and Fauna; Local Astronomy; Anthropology; Weather and Climate) and none are particularly worrisome, as I already have books selected for them. I’ve also already secured some reads for Survey 2020, so everything is in order here!
This is not an official goal or anything, but 150 is usually an easy annual goal for me, one I usually pass in the fall. That….has not happened this year, though 150 by December 30 shouldn’t be a problem. I blame Red Dead Redemption 2 and the Classics.
All in all, I’d give myself a solid A-.
