My year in books!

Way, way, WAY back in January of this very year, on January the 1st (I think), I decided to give Goodreads another go. Goodreads was one of the services I kept signing up for and then deleting and then signing up again. So dumb. What was I thinking?

I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO PROPERLY USE THE TOOLS OF THE INTERWEBS!

Well, by goodness, I do know now!

I decided, as part of a New Year's resolution (even though I don't believe in New Year's resolutions), that I wanted to read more in 2017 and Goodreads would be a great way to track that.

My decision was correct. I have been reading all year and plan to do the same in 2018. Goodreads just sent me an email about My Year in Books and wow! I read 11,218 pages across 43 books. My goal was to read 20 books and I read 43 and it's going to go up because I am knocking out #44 this weekend. I have never read as many books in a year before.

I am very, very happy I gave Goodreads another try. It's helped keep me on track all year. The only downside is that it's not as much of a community as I wanted. I don't know many people that are that active on it and I haven't found any recommendations there. That's ok, I guess. I always find books I want to read via articles online or just seeing them in the library.

And, speaking of the library, I've used the library more this year than ever before. The library has saved me a ton of money and allowed me to find just about everything I want to find even via the online library which sends books directly to my Kindle Paperwhite.

If you want to connect on Goodreads, please add me. I'm right here at this link!
