2015: year 5 in books

Happy 2015!

I’m continuing this goal for another year, with the same plan as last year and the years before: read more than I did last year. In 2014, I read 39 books. So in 2015, my goal is to read at least 40. That’s a tall order, but I think I’ll be able to handle it as it’s less than one book a week. I’m going to try to stick to one a week for as long as I can, and see how far I can get this year. I have a feeling I might beat 40, but we’ll see how it pans out at the end. I’d like to pass my 2011 number, but that may not be possible with as little free time as I have these days…
