Goodreads 2017 Reading Challenge

Goal: 60 books

Current: 34 books

Last year was a spectacular reading year on Goodreads. I won’t be reading quite as many picture books, so I set my goal to 60 books because now I will not feel as bad about reading a lot of picture books or graphic novels.

Pages Read 2017 Challenge


Goal: 17,000 pages (Bonsai)

Current: 8,254 pages

This challenge is hosted by Gina @ Book Dragon’s Lair. Because Goodreads does not take the length of books into account, I want to keep track of the number of pages I read. This also lets me keep track of pages read even when I do not read the entire book.
