This is my 327th post in 2017. I am really pretty happy with how things are going with the blog during the past year. Of course, there is always room for improvement. On December 22, the blog turned 4. It is really amazing how much I have changed things over the years. I think I was pretty consistent during 2017 and have found what works best for me. I do sometimes struggle with finding the time to visit other blogs so that is something I will continue to work on.
I am currently at 179 books read in 2017 which is up from the previous year. Of those books, 43 were audiobooks and 3 were books I didn't finish. I was pretty generous my ratings averaging 3.9 stars during the year. There were a lot of 5 star re-read which probably throw the numbers off. According to Goodreads, I have read 59,590 pages during the year. I hope to maybe squeeze in one more book before midnight to bring the total to an even 180.
Favorite Books from 2017
I don't do a lot of challenges. This is only because I have such a hard time keeping track of things. I did participate in two challenges:
Goal set at 100 books - Completed 179
I wanted this to be a stress free challenge so I decided to set the bar low and just see where I ended up at the end of the year. I barely made my 2016 goal of 150 books so it seems that the stress free approach may have resulted in actually reading more books.
Blogger Shame Challenge Hosted by Anna at Herding Cats & Burning Soup
Total read towards challenge - 9 books
I didn't have an official goal with this challenge so my goal was just to do as much as I could fit in during the year. I wish I had gotten more done but do plan to participate with this challenge again next year.
