Goodreads Challenge 2015

Last year I pledged that I would read 100 books in 2014 on Goodreads. How’d I do?

Well, okay, I guess.

Percentage wise, I failed. But, when it comes to reading books, everybody wins! Plus, reading 53 books in a year is nothing to turn one’s nose at. In other words, I didn’t reach my goal, but I’m pretty happy with where I ended up.

Missy Lacock, one of our writers, read 10 of her pledged 25 books. But, being a grad student, she has a good excuse.

How’d Melanie Figueroa, co-creator and editor of this blog do?

That’s not so bad.

All in all, 2014 was a good year for books. According to Goodreads, at least.

That's a lot of reading.

So how does it look for 2015?


Not as good as 2014, but it's a start.

Only a week into 2015, Goodreads already has 430,702 pledges and the average number of books pledged has increased by 2, from 51 books to 53.

Missy has pledged to read 50 books.

Me? Well, I’m crazy, so I yet again pledged 100.

If I’ve got one thing going for me, it’s that I’m stubborn.

Zero down, one hundred to go.

2015 is looking bright.
