Every year I desperately try to complete a book challenge and this is the first year I’ve actually done it! Sort of.
In past years I’ve attempted to read 100 books. It didn’t go so well. In 2009, I read 65. 2010 brought me to 75. Not bad, but nowhere near 100. I attempted to extend my pattern of getting closer to 100 by 10 for 2011, but I ended up reading a very sad 57 😦
While your numbers from past book challenges is absolutely fascinating, how on Earth does this mean that you completed a challenge? 57 is clearly much less than 85. Please put down your books and work on your numbers, you may think, but indeed I have completed an ABC challenge! I read a book for every letter of the alphabet, so I am finally able to say that I’ve succeeded at something literary regardless of how small!

Now that 2011 is behind us, I’m looking ahead to 2012 and will try, once again, for 85 books this year. Wish me luck!
