Jamie Barringer (Ravenmount) (ravenmount) Since I average about 300 books a year, making 1/3 of my reading apply to this goal seems reasonable. Step 1: assess how far I have gotten so far, since it is now May and I've read almost 100 books (not all mine, not all owned since 2019, etc.).

Jamie Barringer (Ravenmount) (ravenmount) I've been trying to stick to the 1/3 owned books goal anyway this year, just not with any formal stated goal before joining this group. So, I'm on track, it looks like, but my latest habit of listening to audiobooks online is not helping.

I have already scaled the equivalent mountain to this one in the Virtual TBR group. Clearly I need to focus a bit more on my own books.
