Keri Sparks | 274 comments If I keep up my reading trend from this year, I should be able to hit 75 fairly easily in 2019. My goal is to bring my physical TBR list back down to a manageable number and the 60+ I read this year and the 75 for next year should just about do it. Maybe I could finally start borrowing from the library again to read the ones I don't own.

Thank you! I love my library too and would like to get back to borrowing from them. I am going to have to with some of the uncompleted series I have on my bookshelves though.
Although, you give me too much credit. As much of my books I read from my owned collection, that collection somehow keeps growing every time I look at it. If this keeps up, I'll never reach my goal because I'll keep buying more books. LOL.

Thank you very much. Happy readings to you too!

Thank you!! I sure went through a lot of books starting this year but now I find myself beginning to drag. Lol. I think it's because I'm picking up bigger novels then the ones from earlier.

Keri Sparks | 274 comments Goal completed!! 75/75 And the finishing line book was......

The Twelve Kingdoms The Vast Spread of the Seas (The Twelve Kingdoms, #3) by Fuyumi Ono

Which, by the way, was so much better than the first book, and even better than the second even though I had enjoyed the second a lot too.

But why stop at 75?? I shall keep on reading until my eyes fail me, my ears deafen, and my heart stops.

Currently reading: The Hero of Ages (Mistborn, #3) by Brandon Sanderson

That's....actually great advice. I always save the ones I think I will love for last to motivate me to read the ones I'm not sure about, otherwise, I fear they will sit on my shelf untouched forever. But maybe I'm doing it wrong. Lol.

And thank you!
