A book a week

Target: 100+
Running total: (fiction: , non-fiction: , ebooks: )
Week:

Several years ago I decided that I would do my utmost to read a book a week, because I felt like I was getting out of the habit of reading new things and I thought that having a goal to aim for would help. The effort paid off, and it's something I've kept up (off and on) ever since -- it encourages me to read more widely, and it helps me to justify to myself the vast quantities of books that I buy.

Last year I completely failed to reach my target as it turns out solo parenting a 6-year-old and a 1-year-old while also working three days a week doesn't leave much time for anything else. I don't know how I'm going to fit in more reading, but I'm definitely going to try.
