Total books for the year: 0 of 90. I managed to finish Lagom before the 31st, but I’m still working on finishing the other books I was reading before the end of 2020. I’m using #BoutofBooks this week to do it and hopefully start my first book of 2021.

Total books for the year: 88 of 85. I’m trying to finish all of my current reads by New Year’s Eve so that I can bring in the New Year with a new book from my TBR to kick off my #ShelfLove challenge. I’m well over halfway through Lagom, a little more than 20% of the way through The Girl in the Tower, and nearly 30% through Around the World with Auntie Mame, so I think I can do it if I really buckle down and not give in to the temptation of starting any other books.

Total books for the year: 85 of 85. I’m trying to catch up on all of my Christmas reading. I’ve had several Christmas-related books for years and figured I would take a break from my annual re-read of A Christmas Carol to read them. I might still read A Christmas Carol, but with only 4 days until Christmas, I’m not going to rush myself.

Total books for the year: 77 of 85. Today starts the #ThanksgivingReadathon. Instead of listening to podcasts, I’ll be listening to audiobooks. Instead of magazines, I’ll be reading physical books, and instead of reading articles on my phone, I’ll open up an ebook. Even though I’m still 1 book ahead of schedule for my reading goal, as things get busier, I don’t want to fall behind.

Total books for the year: 77 of 85. I didn’t read much this week, but I did watch A LOT of Youtube videos on being frugal and Minimalism. I also listened to quite a few podcasts, and watched “Tidying Up” on Netflix. The Boyfriend and I will be moving in a few months and we want to shed as much stuff as we can so I’m doing all of this to help give me ideas as well as stay motivated.
