2020 READING GOAL PROGRESS

At the beginning of the year, I shared my 2020 reading goals. When I post my wrap up at the end of each month, I also want to reflect on the progress I’m making toward reaching my goals.

Read 75 books: 34/75 (16 books ahead of schedule!)

Explore more genres: I had a decent mix of genres this month, but it was all my favorites. Lydia Bird was the only book that was different for me. Nothing wrong with comfort reads at a time like this!

Buy fewer books: I got my preorder of Crescent City and I ordered a few books at the end of March to prepare for another month of isolation. Whoops.

Finish more series: Nope. Started more series.

Reread more: No rereads this month. Lots of new releases.

Read at least two classics: Not yet

Read one graphic novel each month: Saga, Vol. 2


I didn’t make amazing progress on my goals in March, but I did read a lot. I only read one more book in March than I did in January in February, BUT Crescent City was 800 pages, so I think that should count for more. In April, I’m predicting more physical books as I finally adjust my schedule to shelter-in-place life, but fewer audiobooks because I normally listen to those in the car during my commute to work. Maybe I’ll finally read one of those classics!

How did your month go? What was the best book you read in March?
