I failed my reading challenge again. I even said I was "only" going to read 25 books this time around -- super easy, right? Wrong (apparently). I was seven books shy of my goal.
This year, instead of going for quantity, I think I'll go for type of books, as indicated by this list:
I found this list on Facebook, via at least two other friends. And it's "only" twelve books. I think this will work. Maybe. Some books may satisfy more than one requirement (a book that I've previously abandoned was probably both published before I was born and something I should have read [or finished] in school).
By the way, if you are a Goodreads user (Leonard is), what do you do with books you didn't finish, but you definitely stopped reading? Because you didn't really "finish" them (especially in terms of a reading goal), but you can no longer waste your time on their insipid prose. What then? Just curious. Leonard tried starting a shelf called "dead files" for them, but they are still listed on one of Goodreads' main shelves (read, to read, currently reading) that users cannot get rid of. Please leave your answer/suggestion in the comments.
