I have ended the year with a respectable 80 books, 20 short of my goal. I didn't like a lot of the books I read and they were a varied bunch. 26,872 pages in a year, with an average of a books and a half a week. The rhythm has set in though I went several weeks without touching a book. I will be taking on another reading challenge next year; setting my goals a little lower this time so that I might add to my 4 and 5 starred books instead of the mediocre rating.
