Taking Stock - December - 2016

Total posts this month: 22
Total books read this month: 32
Total books read this year: 390

Audio: 107
Debut: 16

The Good: I surpassed my Goodreads goal of 366 books. Goodreads doesn't count rereads, so my 390 books does not match my GR challenge. Audiobooks account for nearly one third of my reading.

The Bad: I favorited 96 books on GR but did not review all of them here. I didn't read near the number of debuts that I wanted. Because GR doesn't count rereads, I had hoped to get to five audiobooks this break (after meeting my goat) that I really want to reread with my ears. Unfortunately, I didn't read as much asI wanted over break.

Onward and upward to 2017. I will try to review more but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I write quickie reviews on Goodreads. I do want to try to review favorites in a more timely and exhaustive fashion though.
