Reading Goal Progress:

This year I have read 44 books so far! This past month was pretty productive for me as far as reading went. My current 2017 goal is 50 books, which means I am now 11 books ahead of schedule and 88% of my way to my goal, holy cow! I might bump it up again, but I might just be content with leaving it as is and seeing how far I get! Some of my upcoming reads are pretty long, so they’ll take a bit longer to read.
