Well, I have done it! I have reached my 25 book target for the year. I have read a large variety of books and plan to continue to do so throughout the remainder of the year. This may not seem like a large target, and I am surprised to have met it so soon, however last year, I only managed to read 20 books.
Now that I have met the target, I plan to concentrate on books that I know will take a significant amount of time to read. I really want to read Les Miserable by Victor Hugo (the book is about 900 pages).
