Richard Moore (richoman25) | 1182 comments 2018 Reading Challenge.

My goal: 1000 books.

(It was originally 365, however I seemed to have increased my reading speed from last year. I may be biting off more than I can chew, but without stretching yourself, there can be no growth.)

Total Books: 900
