Friday Question #122 - Mid Year Reading Check In

Happy June, Readers! :sun_with_face:

We can’t believe we’re at the midway point of our reading year. How are your reading goals looking so far?

I think I have another 27 days before we’re really at the midway point! :wink: But according to the StoryGraph, I’m ahead of my overall reading goal (220 books) by 4 books. I’m also reading LGBTQ+ lit every month (I think so far, about 1/6 of what I’ve read) and reading books by BIPOC authors (almost 1/2 of my read books).

I don’t set a goal of how many books to read in a month or year. Some books take longer to read, like anything by James A. Michener; while others are fast and fun like Carol J. Perry. As long as I’m enjoy reading the stories I’m good. A new genre for me is I’ve read some LGBTQ books and they have been quite enjoyable. Another genre I tried was Fantasy, I’m still not a fan, I tried.

unfortunately, my reading this year isn’t going well :sweat_smile: I joined a few challenges to see if it’ll help me get motivated. I’ve read 10 books so far and hope to get to 50 :slight_smile:

I’ve read and reviewed 98 books, with a goal of 150. I’ll probably up my goal as soon as I reach the 150.

I am 53 books ahead of schedule. My goal is 200 books for the year. I feel a little burnt out right now and I am not sure if it is just the end of the school year into summer school prep getting to me, or what.
