It’s the final day of the End of Year 2017 Celebration! One of many things I like to do at the end of each year is look at my reading statistics and my goals to see how well I did.
If I remember correctly, I originally set a goal to match last year’s reading record of 40 books. After the original goal, I have set up a secondary goal of 60 books if I ever reach 40 books this year. Another goal of mine I had was to beat the amount of pages I have read last year as well.
Last year, I read 41 books and 16,758 pages.
This year, I have read 74 books and 28,445 pages.
As you have seen, I have dominated the goals this year and set a new record for me and I am extremely proud that I could have read so many amazing books this year. Now that I have shared what I have done this year, what are my goals for 2018?
Since I believe that I could be going through several changes in 2018 that could affect my reading time, I am not planning to match and beat my record this year, although that would be nice. My goals for 2018 are:
Read a total of at least 50 Books
Read a total of at least 23,000 Pages.
Of course I will have a secondary plan that will “unlock” once the above goals are met. If the above goals are met, my secondary goal with be a Match & Beat Goal of what I read this year. That would mean I would have to read an additional 23 Books and about 5,000 Pages. It could be a tricky goal, but if I can do it this year, I can do it again.
Lastly, its time for the Overall End of Year Count, where I share the total amount of Books and Pages I have read since 2012, where I have begun reading.
Total Amount of Books: 160
Total Amount of Pages: 63,198
That is a lot! I wonder what my total will be next year. I certainly hope that I will reach my 200th book. Now that’s going to be another goal!
What are you statistics this year? Have you completed your goals? What do you hope to do next year? Let me know!
