We are 8.33% of the way through 2023. WTF??
I just typed “2023” in the title of a post. Weren’t we supposed to have jet packs and flying cars by now? Oh vey.
It’s cold. Damn cold. I need a blanket, a cup of hot coffee, and a book. See you next spring!
The reading continues and this post is waaayyyy ex post facto!
The reading continues!
Hey, I mostly finished my reading goal this month! Not in names, but numbers. That still counts!
You knew it had to happen eventually, right? This was, indeed, my slow-down month. Even worse than last month, in fact. Ugh.
It was a weird reading month. Started slow, picked up in the middle, and slowed down again at the end.
For the first time in like ever, I read far more books than graphic novels. It felt good but I hate that I didn’t get to two of the books on my May list.
608 pages of graphic novels.
Can he do it?
Ten more books. Ten!! What the heck is wrong with me?? Every month I say it has to slow down or stop completely and it’s not. WTH??
Ohhhhh, buddy! While it slowed down a bit at the end (because of vacation), I still had another good month in March!
Okay, usually a very overachieving month for me is followed by a massive lull the next month. Not so here.
I finished my third book of February earlier tonight, marking my 13th of 2022 out of my 48-book goal.
WOW! I had a pretty amazing January in terms of reading. And, while I know some people don't tend to look so kindly on graphic novels when it comes to reading goals, I don't care. I won't count individual issues, but I will count graphic novels and collected editions, as most of you know. And, yes, that did boost my count a little. But, again, I don't care.
I'm really happy with how my reading goal turned out in 2021. As stated, I'm maintaining the same 48-book goal for 2022, but adding in the Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles 13-book series as part of that count. Given all that, here's how I hope to see January shape up.
My 2021 reading goal is complete. Let’s see what books helped kick me over the finish line!
It only took me just shy of four months, but I finally got through Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary.
I got some reading done this month. Some I planned, some I didn’t. Recap?
Well… I’ve made progress on my list of books for the month. I mean, I did read a couple of them, but life happens, right?
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! That’s my reaction to questions about how I did on my monthly Libroqueue challenge.
Yeah yeah, so I didn’t read all the books I set out to read, but I did read four books throughout the month, which keeps me on par for my overall goal.
I've kinda hit a strange place in my reading right now. For the last couple of weeks, I've been without an audiobook to which I want to listen.
As predicted, May raised the bar high. Too high. Unsustainably high. And I paid for it in June. Paid ugly.
Yeah, so I kinda knocked it outta the park in May with my reading. Dangerously so. I jacked the bar so high that I’ll never be able to keep pace in June.
I tried. I really and truly tried to get into Lauren Oyler’s Fake Accounts. Honestly! I did!
I actually did pretty good on my reading this past month. Buckle up!
As we close in on the end of this abbreviated month, let’s see how my reading goal progressed!
It’s the last day of the month, so that means it’s time to review my book reading and set my goal books for the next month!
Hey, look at that! A reset of the numbering of my Libroqueue posts for a new year. Let’s see what I’m going to read in January.
I was about to preface this post by saying it might be the final Libroqueue post of 2020, but, now that I think about it, it may not be. We'll have to wait and see how hard up I get for content this holiday break.
I knew nine books would be a stretch. BIIIIGGGGGG stretch. As of today, I'm only through five of them. Oddly, not the five you might expect. Here's the list of what I planned to read:
Time to pick out some books to read in November. I’m going to try to keep the reading rate up from my average of four. Because... why not?
This month has kinda gotten away from me in more ways than one. I guess that's me explaining why my mid-month and end-of-month Libroqueue posts may both be happening in short order. But, then again, this month didn't necessarily go as planned in terms of my monthly reading goal.
