By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail - Benjamin Franklin
Is this what you meant? I am highly prepared to fail and am quite prepared in numerous goals and reading challenges for the year, that I highly doubt I shall manage in fact below you can find what I'm on about

Ever the optimist!

Rokkan (rokk) | 30 comments Not exactly XD that quote did come to mind, but it was more a thing about thinking positively. By saying you're going to fail, you'll probably fail. Self fulfilling prophecies and all that.

I have to say, though, you are looking very organised! I'm doing an alphabet soup thing as well, and have printouts for 3 other challenges too, including the popsugar one.

Here's to a successful year of reading!

Beth | 12 comments Haha oh, If I said that I would deffo read five thousand books next year then I would be less likely to do it so this way is more of reverse psychology to help me achieve (All being well) I like my options and I'm planning books towards the different challenges and I'm finding it easier, because I can double up on the challenges so alphabet soup and popsugar. I'm trying it out and if it doesn;t work then at least I've tried. Good luck to you and I hope you achieve all your reading goals for 2016! :) xxx
