Books Read in 2019

Cumulative Reading List

Here's where I'll be tracking my reading in 2019.

I usually have 50 books as my annual goal, but in recent years I've rarely achieved it. So this year I'm being a little more realistic and cutting that number down to 40 books. That's just a little more than a three-book average per month, and sounds fairly doable. So, here we go again....

3. Educated: A Memoir. Tara Westover (2018; nonfiction/autobiography; 339 pages, Kindle edition; ARC)

  1. I think 40 or 50 books is a very do-able goal. I did not count how many books I read in 2018 but will do so soon. I finished with a fabulous bang, Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope. It is good to end on a high note.

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
