I beat Goodreads!Posted: December 27, 2013
That’s right, Goodreads, with your judgemental “You are 5% behind schedule”. I BEAT YOU! I only set my goal to 40 books, which is not quite one a week, but hey, that’s more than I read the year before without your incessant nagging.
So I guess I owe you thanks, you harpy.
As I’m drafting this I just started “Running Home” by Julie Hutchings. I may well have finished it by the time this post goes live. It’s not like I have anything on in the days beforehand. :p
Four observations on 2013:
1. John Marsden. Oh yes.
2. A quarter of my reads were either small press or self-published.
3. Just over a third of my reads were by Australian authors (I’m counting Katie Hamstead in that list even though she now lives in America). Almost half of that was because of point one, but I’m going to try and keep it up.
4. I read two non-fiction books, both on writing.
I was going to make point five my favourite read, but I can’t. I just can’t. TOO MANY CHOICES!
