I hit my goal of 80 books last week, but I'm still going! It'd be great to make it to 100. If I read a lot more graphic novels I can definitely do it. If you're curious what I've read so far, you can browse my goodreads shelf for 2018 here

I'm currently reading An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green and I love it so far.

@800 words of heaven I'm really confused by your numbers... o.O

I also count comic books towards my reading goal, but I don't share them here. Those are the missing numbers

Oh well... One book at a time, I suppose.

That's the spirit! It can be disappointing not meeting your reading goal, but enjoying the reading experience is more important, no?
