It is time to check out my numbers for the year so far.
For the Read the Books You Buy Challenge, I have read and reviewed 19 books so far. Ten of those books were purchased in January 2017, and nine were purchased in the second half of 2016, which still qualifies them for this challenge.
Books Purchased in January: 20 – so half of them have been read
Books Purchased in February so far: 9 – and I’ve read none of them.
Books Purchased Between July – December 2016: 71
Books Read: 53
Books Unread for the second half of 2016: 18
Obviously, several of those books from 2016 were read in that same year, and counted for last year’s challenge.
So….my work is cut out for me. But what fun the work has been! I’ve been enjoying these books.
As for those purchased before July 2016, some of which go way back to 2014…those are in the TBR Jar…and they will be dealt with…or not.
2014: Unread Books- 20
2015: Unread Books – 13
2016: Unread Books from January – June – 21
The task seems huge, even insurmountable, but let’s total up all the unread books I’ve purchased since 2014: 81!
The year is new, and I think I can probably put a dent in these numbers. What do you think?
Of course, the review books will take up some time, but so far, I only have 6 NetGalley books to read and review (I’ll probably get more, though).
And as for author review books, I have two waiting…and one Amazon Vine book.
I should probably be mindful of these numbers when making requests.
What does your reading year look like so far? Do my numbers seem manageable? How about yours?
