Gwen S. (gwen1629) | 429 comments Last year was so dismal, I had to shamefully adjust my year end goal down from 102 to 52 books... why?? I started watercoloring/ painting, and multitasking two very time consuming, intense hobbies is nearly an impossible feat. My sub challenges slowly fell by the roadside, tsk, tsk! So this year, I will continue to read and review my novels, without the numerous group challenges, but I am sorry that I would not be interacting with some of the best moderators in the world! Thank you, GR Moderators/Team!
See you all on the flip side of 2019! ;-)

Gwen S. (gwen1629) | 429 comments My simplified goal is to complete 55 books in 2018, while turning 10,000 pages and successfully fulfilling the A-Z Title year long challenge!

Gwen S. (gwen1629) | 429 comments Completed Goodreads January 2018 Marathon Challenge! Yipeeeee!!!!

Read 11/10 books, and turned 2,928/2,500 pages pledged. This number, 2928 pages, is slightly under 30% of my allotted pages pledged to be turned for the year.

While my GR A-Z Title Challenge, got off to an amazing start as I was able to check off 11/26 letters. C, E, G, L, N, O, S, T, U, V, and Y! I am immersed into Barbara Freethy’s Callaway series; the stories and characters are interesting as well as gravity defying.

Now onto February 2018!
... And to my fellow readers, keep doing what brings you joy!

Blagica  | 12049 comments A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. I hope that April brings you many more five star reads. Do you have a stand out book so far this year?

Gwen S. (gwen1629) | 429 comments Between August 2018 -November 2018, I have turned 6,628 pages! I should be close to my targeted goal of 10,000 pages.

Gwen S. (gwen1629) | 429 comments With a still few weeks left in December, I have met and surpassed my reading goal of 55 books by four (107.3%) , and turned 14,737 pages out of my 10,000 page goal (147.4%). Still have to complete my A-Z Title challenge with 23/26 done, and very close to completion of the novel 'Orphan X' for letter X. Leaving letters, K & Z, to finish up the year with. I have the books chosen, which is usually half the battle. ;-)

Gwen S. (gwen1629) | 429 comments Read 59/55 books, turned 14,737/10/000 pages, and completed 23/26 of the A-Z Title challenge. Just finishing up letter X-'Orphan X', then onto letters K and Z. Those titles have been chosen. May end up moving my goal on pages turned, before the year is out.
