Open Thread: GoodReads is Very Disappointed in Me
Posted by Ana Mardoll at Friday, December 09, 2011 Edit
If you can't quite read the picture, it's informing me that I've read 104 out of my 365 book reading goal, which means I'm sitting at 28% with no hope in sight. Ha.
It's not like I set the goal realistically. I picked 365 because there are 365 days in a year and reading a book a day sounds lovely, if a bit tiring. And a good fair few of those 104 that I did read were ABNA entrants (which take a heck of a lot of time, let me tell you) and graphic novels like Claymore, which I can whip through pretty fast. So it's rather arbitrary, really, but a fun way to track my reading in general terms over the year.
(Husband has also pointed out that according to his ARAT program, my reviewing -- and therefore my reading -- has plummeted since I started the blog. Double Ha.)
But! The astute among you have noticed that there is a badge for winning. Ana does not like to not win badges. Badges are basically my reason for getting out of bed in the morning. Badges are why I cannot bear to uninstall the Kobo app from my phone, despite being inferior to every other reader app I own, because the Kobo app treats reading like Pokemon. And, seriously, I eat that sort of thing up. And since there's basically no chance that I'll read 265 books this weekend, I fixed it another way.
All better now!
How many books have you read this year?
