Natalie (esaria) | 267 comments I started off with 24 books, then 50, etc... at the start, and I've already managed to read 73 (something which surprised me IMMENSELY considering past years). As such, I think I can safely aim for >100 this year :|

My challenge is showing that I've read 95 books, but I swear it's only 94. What's happeninggggg


message 11: by Susy (new)

Susy (susysstories) Probably a book is counting as read twice. Happened to me too.


message 12: by Natalie (new)

Natalie (esaria) | 267 comments Yeah, probably xD

It's part of the reason I keep track with a thread as well. That way I can double check ;D


message 13: by Natalie (new)

Natalie (esaria) | 267 comments Added the books I've read since my last update... though not the ratings because I'm just a bit overwhelmed right now. Will update with other information (so that I can attempt to keep track of everything) soon c:
