You might remember that in 2016 I set a goal to read 40 books that year, and I didn't make my goal. I read "just" 28 books. Fun, deep, wonderful, great books.
Since I didn't hit the 40 books mark, I set the same goal of 40 books for 2017. And this year?
This year, I was successful. I was beyond successful. I smashed through the 40 books mark and finished the year out with 44 books on my "read" shelf.
Meeting my goal...exceeding my goal.... It felt great. I felt reconnected with my love for books. I reconnected with the bookish part of myself. The more books I read, the more I reconnected.
For 2018, I'm setting a higher bar. My goal is to read 50 books this year.
Here's a look at the books I read in 2017. If you haven't read them, they have my seal of approval. Check them out of your local library and get reading.
