2015 Reading: January – June

I read my first chapter book during spring state testing in the second grade and have been a proud bookworm ever since.  I’m happy to say that my love for reading has only intensified over the years.

Thanks to Goodreads, I am able to set goals and obsessively track my reading progress throughout the year. For 2015 I set my goal at 50 books.  I wasn’t sure if I would actually read that many, but I was willing to give it a shot.  Here we are at the end of 2015 and I blew that goal out of the water.  I managed to read 73 books this year, with a grand total of 20,578 pages.  That is an average of 281 pages per book.  Crazy, right?

I don’t want this to be the world’s longest blog post, so I am going to share my 2015 reading list in two installments — January through June and July through December ((you’re welcome!))
