My Goals:

I plan on keeping things pretty simple. I’m having fun reading and I want to continue just enjoying what I’m reading. My goal is to get in about 1500 pages this week. It’s a bit of a lofty goal but I want to give it a go. I’ll utilizing audiobooks while I work from home and that should really help me out!

I’ll be using Bookly to track and time my reading.

      YES! I love that they do a read-a-thon at the beginning of January each year. It really gets the year started off on the right foot for reading. It’ll also help me great my reviews built up again! I’ve only got the next three reviews days read.
