It’s been just about three months since I began the 2012 Reading Challenge on Goodreads. I just thought I would give a little update on my progress, and the entire challenge community’s progress.
Currently, I have read 17 books toward my goal of 50. That puts me five books (or 11%) behind at this point. I’m not worried, because my system pretty much relies on a week or two week reading marathon where I get through six or seven books, and then I take a little bit of a break. Right now, I am just lining up what I plan to read next. Those 17 books include six Ku
rt Vonnegut books: Sirens of Titan, Cat’s Cradle, Slaughterhouse Five, Galalpagos, Breakfast of Champions, and Time Quake. However, the 17 books do not include any of the classics I promised myself I would read — I’m still working on that goal!
As far as the entire community goes, there are now 232, 055 participants with a total of 13,972,967 pages pledged. Each user has an average of 60 books as their goal, and 459 people have already completed their challenge. Clearly, I still have a long way to go. But it’s only June! I still have six months to knock out 33 books. I’m pretty confident it can be done. But I’ll update you again in three months.
