Rhi (jamtheory) Hi everyone,

Bit late to the party for adding my goal and books so far due to some health stuff but I'm ready to catch up. This year my goal is 90 books - this is the same goal I had last year but I failed for the first time (since starting in 2012) and only read 58 books. I usually increase by 5 books each time but I thought I'd stick to the same 90 books goal and hope I hit it this year.

I haven't been inspired by many challenges I've seen so far but if anyone sees a pattern in the list so far and wants to recommend a challenge feel free.

So this is my first 28 books read so far.
