Back in January I set a goal to read a minimum of 20 books this year. An easily surpassable mark. Or so I though. Well, here we are now in late October and I've managed but a disappointing nine for a total of 2,384 pages read. At this point last year I had read 16 books for a total of 4,516 pages. While there is still time to add to this year's total, the goal of 20 books is too far out of reach at this late point.
There is really no excuse for this failing save for personal indolence in terms of reading. Sure I got bogged down in a couple books (Sir Thoma More's "Utopia" for one), but that hardly accounts for being so far behind schedule. Better luck with this next year.
