The 2020 Annual Reading Challenge List Thread
#11  Dazrin 12-06-2019, 11:30 AM
Covid-19 Update: As of June 1 I reduced my goal to 12,000 pages and as of September 1 I've abandoned my goal. I'm still tracking what I read (which isn't much) but I'm not going to aim for any specific number of pages. All I'm doing recently is some short stories from podcasts really.

I am keeping my goal from 2019 of 24,000 pages.

I will continue to participate in the New Leaf Book Club and want to read 8 of 12 selections there this year (leaving myself some room for unavailable titles).


Page Goal: Read 24,000 pages in 2020.
Status as of June 20: 7,869 pages read, 24 books/short stories completed.
