Pam Lauman | 7 comments I successfully completed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2017 and Mt. Ararat in 2016 but still have way too many books. My goal for this year is to read and discard 60 print books and 15 digital books. Fingers crossed!


Hilary (A Wytch's Book Review) (knyttwytch) Good luck and happy climbing!

Pam Lauman | 7 comments 2018 El Toro Reading Challenge (75 Books)


My goal was to read 75 books that I owned for 2018 and I was happy to make it. I wanted to read and discard 60 books but only completed 55. I read and discarded 45 paperbacks and 10 hardcovers. I read 8 eBooks including 2 Kindle, and 6 iBooks. I listened to 19 Audible audiobooks. It feels so good and freeing to enjoy books and then pass them on to others. Thanks for motivating me to accomplish this goal!
