I read 15 this year, hoping for 20 in 2020 and just to get back into reading as a hobby more than netflix as a hobby edit: bumped to 35!

I'm noting audiobooks, otherwise it's probably an ebook but occasionally a library or purchased paperback.

1. Uninvited - Lysa TerKeurst (audiobook). 3/5.
2. How Music Got Free: The End of an Industry, the Turn of the Century, and the Patient Zero of Piracy by Stephen Witt. 4/5.
3. Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West (audiobook). 5/5.
4. Sew You Want to be a Hero (Threadbare 2) by Andrew Seiple. 4/5.
5. With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. 4/5.
6. Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler (audiobook). 4/5.
7. Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. 5/5.

8. This Is My Body: A Memoir of Religious and Romantic Obsession by Cameron Dezen Hammon. 5/5.
9. Far from the Tree by Robin Benway (audiobook). 4/5.
10. The Mother In Law by Sally Hepworth (audiobook). 4/5.
11. Everyday Supernatural by Mike Pilavachi and Andy Croft. 4/5.
12. The Whisper Network by Chandler Baker (audiobook). 4/5.
13. The Preacher's Wife by Kate Bowler. 5/5.
14. Children of the Land by Marcelo Hernandez Castillo. 5/5.

15. Make it Scream, Make it Burn by Leslie Jamison (audiobook). 4/5.
16. Scattered Servants by Alan Scott. 3/5.
17. Strange Days: Life in the Spirit by Mark Sayers in a Time of Upheaval. 5/5.

18. All-American Muslim Girl by Nadine Jolie Courtney. 4/5.
19. Strung Out: One Last Hit and Other Lies That Nearly Killed Me by Erin Khar. 4/5.

This year I want to:

1: Finish all the Miss Marple books remaining in my TBR pile. I started the series back in April but got distracted halfway through. 7 more ought to do it.

2: Read 3 non-fiction books.

3: Borrow more books from the library instead of buying and therefore increasing my TBR list. Not sure if freebies and Kindle Unlimited count as buying, though.

4: Read at least 3 books considered to be classic literature.

No, I'm not slowing down but I expect that I'll have less leisure time due to family obligations. Which is why I'm aiming for a book a week, anything over that will be icing on the cake.

No real goal except to read as much as possible and track what I read.

Notes for Goals
With book count, I don't have a set number. The past three years at Goodreads, I set the goal for 200 while softly pushing 300, which I've met. I leave at 200 to not make it more stressful. This year I mainly focus on Genre, series, and format goals.
