2nd Annual Love for Books Readathon, February 9 – 15

To join in, sign up here. The rules are simple and non-constraining. Read anything you like and set any goals you like. There will be a small prize and perhaps some mini-challenges along the way.

I’ve been averaging about 165 pages per day so far this year, so to make it a challenge, I will set myself a goal of 1,400 pages for the week. That should allow me to finish my two current reads and one or two more.

Current stats:

The Narrow Road to the Deep NorthI am currently on pg 392 of 467

Natchez BurningI am currently on pg 460 of 853

I’m also working through The NIV Bible in 90 Days and am on page 375 of 1088

I will come back and update this post as I go:

So, I barely met my goal, despite the promising start. In my defense, we spent the weekend going to all eight of the Best Picture nominees for the 2015 Oscars (some good movies in there!) and that really cut my opportunities to read. It was fun to participate in this little challenge, though.
