Pixie  | 554 comments Greetings one and all!

One thing I want to do in 2019 is read some of the more 'challenging' or lengthy books I have had for a while, and some of the books where i have many unread books by an author. Because of this, I am setting my goals lower than usual to allow for some month+ reads.

ॐ 25 books in 2019

ॐ 10,000 pages in 2019

ॐ Read at least one book each from the following authors on my shelves:
- Haruki Murakami
- Angela Carter
- Margaret Atwood
- Milan Kundera
- A.S. Byatt
- Gabriel Garcia Marquez
- John Irving
- Barbara Kingsolver
- Umberto Eco
- Iain Banks
- Paul Auster
- Hermann Hesse
- Doris Lessing
- Ian McEwan
- Toni Morrison
- Iris Murdoch
- Tom Robbins
- Alice Walker

It looks like this will be my final tally for 2019. I'm glad to have (just) reached my reduced goal of 20 books, but it looks like I'm just not going to manage my page goal between now and tomorrow night.

So here's to a more successful attack on Mount TBR in 2020! If you'd like to follow my progress, you can find me here:
