Niamh | 342 comments For 2019, I am going to attack my TBR pile by reading as many of my print books as possible. Any Aussie Readers challenges that I join will be mostly filled by these books as possible.

I will edit this post as I read books, as I have too many to list out now (there are currently 63, but with Christmas coming, that number will rise).

53 books read

My reading rate has definitely slowed since going back to work after Christmas, but I'm slowly getting there

message 19: by Niamh (new)

Niamh | 342 comments Finished my 20th book last night. Just counted how many books I still have to read. There's 45. I would like to get that number halved by the end of the year. This is going to be fun

Brenda | 69424 comments Mod
Doing well Niamh!


message 21: by Niamh (new)

Niamh | 342 comments I haven't updated this list in about two months, but in that time I've managed to read 13 books. All were quite enjoyable, and I'm currently riding the tail end of a reading high, so hopefully my reading speed continues into the spring.

Brenda | 69424 comments Mod
That's great Niamh!


message 23: by Niamh (new)

Niamh | 342 comments Again, bad at updating the list, but read 5 books in the last month, finishing off The Medoran Chronicles, and starting The Trials of Apollo.


message 24: by Niamh (new)

Niamh | 342 comments So according to this post, I started the year with 63 unread print books, and have read 45. I just re-counted, and I now have 55 unread. I have read more than I bought, but still probably bought way too many...
