NewMRLogo

KRF’s Goals Recap – 2018

EOTY

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 and compare them from previous years.

Last year, I set a goal to read at least 50 books and 23,000 pages. If I were to beat those goals, then I would try a “Match and Beat” goal, which was 74 Books and 28,445 pages. During the year, I did change my goal from 50 to 51 because there was a book I read but I didn’t want to have it included in the original 50 books goal. Let’s take a closer look to see how I did.

Last year, I have read 74 books and 28,445 pages.
This year, I have read a total of 77 books and 24,075 Pages.

KRF’s Best Author of 2018

EOTY

As I did the previous year, I am continuing the “Best Author of the Year” post one more time for this year. This is going to be a yearly thing for me as well. The Best Author can be only selected based on books that I have read this year and have made reading worth while and extremely fun for me. The author would also make me want to keep reading as well.

Christmas Blog Tag!

NewBTLogo

Just Another Christmas Tag.

When I was researching Christmas Tag when I was making mine, I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t repeating tags that were already made. As I was trying to narrow down my main theme (which eventually came down to Christmas Characters), I came across this tag and it actually looked like a nice, simple tag to do. However, I wasn’t able to find the original creator or any rules, just I guess I’ll just get right into it then?
(Note: I know this isn’t a book tag, but all I had was this book tag header…)

The Befana Comes By the Night

3

Today’s prompt, brought to you by Camilla @ Reader in the Attic, is very interesting. Camilla uses Befana, an old lady who flies on a broom and leaves sweets for good children. This happens every January for Italian kids. However, for this prompt, we become Befana and we’re passing out books! I do have Italian heritage, so this one has caught my eye and I figured to do it as well.
