2014 Reads

In 2013, I set a goal for myself of reading 85 books. I just barely  met that goal, finishing the year with 86 books read in total. There were books I wanted to read (like Game of Thrones) that I didn't pick up because the size of the books was prohibitive. Not that I fear big books. I like them. And I cannot lie. But knowing that they would take longer to read made me squirrelly because of my 85 book goal. This year I want to allow myself to read books regardless of length, regardless of how taking the time to get through them will affect my reading challenge. As such, I've set myself a substantially lower goal of 60 books in 2014. That's totally doable without limiting me. I just want to read because I love reading not because I'm racing toward some arbitrary finish line. The end.
