At the start of the year, I wrote about my two reading goals: to finish at least 50 books; and to work my way through a list of twelve books inspired by ModernMrsDarcy’s 2015 Reading Challenge.
I would never wish to read only for the sake of clocking up conquests. But I do find having an overall target to aim for helpful in maintaining focus on the importance of reading in my life. Will it matter if I don’t make it? No, of course not.
