I beat Goodreads!

GoodreadsThat’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.

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!
