My goals

Honestly, I don’t expect to finish more than maybe 3 books, so I’ll set that as my goal. Although I’d love to make it to 5! But it’s just not possible this week, as I work 3 doubles and I have to be at OVMA all day Saturday =/ The only days I can really dedicate to reading will be Monday and Thursday. So 3 sounds good!


Here’s where I’ll track my progress for the week. Feel free to use this format for your own progress post!

  1. I’m hoping to read 3 books, too, and to finish 2 previously started books (actually, I just finished the 1st one).

    I’m not planning to do daily updates, I’ll only update my post 2 or 3 times through the week with how I’m doing, hopefully that’s fine. I hate counting pages read ;)

    Thanks for hosting :)

    Happy reading!

  2. This challenge is absolutely perfect for me! I haven’t read anything since last weekend (well, I read one book last night) and I really need to catch up in reading. Also, it may be an easier week of school, so I will actually have time to read! Thank you for hosting. :)
