Total pages read this week: 228

TBR Mountain: -1

Total books read: 6 of 80

I spent a crazy amount of time over the past week going through all of my books on Goodreads and sorting them out into two new shelves (Physical and Ebook) and then reconfiguring my spreadsheet to calculate how many physical books I’ve read versus how many I own. I own 517 physical books that I haven’t read yet, and another 308 ebooks, plus 72 audiobooks.

Now that I’ve got all of the numbers and a clear view of my TBR situation, my goals are to 1) read 80 books this year, as already planned, and 2) reduce my physical TBR by 24 books. I’m already down 1 book this month, so I’m going to try to finish A Deadly Education by the 31st.
